Abstract

The local outbreak of COVID-19 and its development into a global pandemic in a short time have made health
literacy more critical than ever in facing these global health threats. The main objective of the research is to
know the reflection of the strategic theory in health literacy and the relationship and impact statement, and then
it is possible to know the determinants of the health institution’s success in managing health literacy efforts as
the Department of Health of Najaf was the organization in question. The researcher surveyed the opinions of
a number of its employees, as the research community was (248) employees, and the research sample reached
(155) responses on which the analysis can be performed. A set of specialized descriptive and inferential tests
and methods were conducted on the data obtained by using (SPSS v.26) program. The results show that the
health institution’s interest in strategic theory will contribute to achieving health literacy by demonstrating the
relationship and impact between the two research variables. The research extracts a set of recommendations,
the most important of which is to increase the interest of the departments in the Najaf Health Department in the
concept of strategic theory and make health literacy programs a priority that must be implemented even in light
of the scarcity of financial resources.
