Abstract

Overweight children still serious problem in the world, which its prevalence among developing countries increases over the years. One of its risk factors is low health behavior (HB). Recently, one of important HB determinant is health literacy (HL), where low HL cause low HB. This study aims to analyze the influence of HL's determinant on HL and HB simultaneously among urban mother with overweight children. In This study, four HL’s determinant, i.e., health status (HS), health education (HE), income status (IS) and social support (SS), will analyze its influence on HL and HB by using Structural Equation Model (SEM) approach with SmartPLS version 2. The design of the study is cross-sectional with 302 respondents of mothers in Jakarta that has children with 7 – 12 years old. HL and its determinants have a significant effect on HB with confidence interval (CI)=95%. HS and HE has a significant effect with CI=95% both on HL and HB. Meanwhile IS has a significant effect on HL and HB but with CI=80%. SS has no significant effect on HL but has a significant effect on HB with CI=95%. The effect of health literacy and its role if very important on health behavior. Although health literacy alone has a small effect in a matter of its magnitude to health behavior, however health literacy become moderating variable, which increases health literacy’s determinant effect on health behavior
