[Comment] Informing health choices in low-resource settings

Because of the abundance of health information, available via multiple sources, it is important that individuals be able to critically appraise health claims to make well informed decisions. This is of even greater importance in low-income countries where individuals cannot afford to invest in ineffective treatments. Indeed, public health practitioners have long touted the importance of health education; for example, a variety of well tested and updated curricula to prevent adolescent pregnancy and HIV have shown positive health outcomes across low-income and high-income communities.
