The main purpose of this study was to examine the relationship among students' demographic backgrounds, their media use behavior, their health information-seeking behavior, their health information literacy, and their eHealth literacy. Students were randomly selected from 15 junior high schools. There were 758 valid questionnaires. The major findings were as follows: participating students dedicated an average of 9 hours per week to each of the following activities: watching TV, using cell phones (including the Internet), and computers. Students obtained health information from either family members, the Internet, school teachers, magazines/newspapers, books/pamphlets, peers, or TV/radio several times each month. Students had eHealth literacy that was higher than mid-level. Multiple regression analysis showed that students who used chat rooms more often , seek health information more frequently, and had a higher information literacy score were more likely to have higher degree of eHealth literacy. The results of the present study suggest a need for the implementation of educational intervention to enhance students' health information literacy and eHealth literacy.
