Health literacy and pediatric asthma are two prevalent and significant public health issues. Although there are limited relevant studies focused on health literacy regarding pediatric asthma, there is accumulating evidence that suggests a link between low health literacy and asthma in children. The complex interplay of social-ecological factors for health literacy and asthma requires the integrated perspectives of multiple sectors and professions to understand and promote health literacy to improve asthma outcomes for children. This review examines epidemiological studies concerning health literacy and pediatric asthma over the past decade and discusses possible avenues of future research.
