The aim of this study is; to measure the health literacy level of women who come to a municipality's sports center and to increase health education and health literacy. This study was conducted with 26 women. In the study, a questionnaire with 12 questions about socio-demographic characteristics prepared by the researcher was applied by face-to-face interview technique. Turkish Health Literacy Scale-32 and health literacy scenario scale were also applied to the participants. Afterwards, 30 minutes of health-related training was given. 15 days after the training, Turkish Health Literacy Scale-32 and Health literacy scenario scale were repeated. The mean age of women is 31.53±6.43. 50% of women are single and 50% are married. Considering their educational status, 12 people (46.2%) are high school graduates, 12 people (46.2%) are university graduates, and 2 people (7.6%) are primary school graduates. When asked about social security, 15 (57.7%) of them stated that they had SGK and 5 (19.2%) of them stated that they had a green card. 6 (23.1%) of them do not have social security. The participants' Turkish Health Literacy Scale-32 pre-test total score mean was 39.46±7.84. Turkish Health Literacy Scale-32 general index score of those with social security SGK is significantly. We comparise Turkish Health Literacy Scale-32 scores before and after the training. Education did not change the scores of accessing and using information in treatment and service. However, the scores of understanding information and evaluating information increased significantly in post-training treatment and service. After the training, the score of accessing information increased significantly in the prevention of diseases and in the improvement of health. There was no significant change in other scores. Education significantly increased the Turkish Health Literacy Scale-32 total score. When the participants' pre- and post-training health literacy scenario scale scores are comparising education did not change knowledge, evaluation of knowledge, use of knowledge and total score. Access to health-related information and understanding information scores increased significantly after the training. In conclusion; This study showed that women's health literacy is low in our region and this can be increased with health education.
