Abstract:
The US-based Health Information National Trends Survey (HINTS) conducted every other year since 2003 by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has become a major source for relevant data about the public's access to and use of relevant health information for cancer prevention and control. These data have been used to guide the development of evidence-based health communication intervention programs to reduce health information gaps and promote informed health decision making in the US. An innovative collaboration has been established between the NCI, George Mason University's Center for Health and Risk Communication, and Renmin University of China's Public Opinion Research Institute to conduct a biennial representative national HINTS survey in China, under the auspices of the Chinese Ministry of Health. Pilot data are currently be collected in two major Chinese cities, with full national administration of the first biennial HINTS-China research program to be conducted in 2013. Data gathered from the HINTS-China surveys will be used to guide evidence-based health promotion interventions across China to promote public health. This exciting international research program opens the door to expanding the HINTS research program to many other countries around the world to help promote global health.
