The following initiatives contribute to health literacy.

Before joining a study, participants must give their consent. The ICF is a written document that aims to inform a participant about the purpose, procedures, potential benefits and risks of the studies. This document should be written in simple language understandable to the participants.
At Servier, we use a template_of ICF made with patient’s associations
At the end of the study, we write a lay summary intended for the general public. The lay summary is a summary of the clinical trial results written in an easy-to-understand way. All lay summaries are reviewed by patient’s associations.
