Effective health communication is important for informed decision-making since Patient centered care requires an understanding of the sources patients use to obtain different types of health in information. Recognizing and supporting those who provide health care advice may be an effective way to disseminate health messages to broader audiences. This study aimed to identify how today's different sources of information can affect health awareness of the population in Jordan. In order to verify the objectives of the study and test the hypotheses, the research team designed a questionnaire Questions with (29) question distributed over five dimensions with each dimension corresponding to one hypothesis of the research hypotheses. The questionnaire was distributed to (190) individuals with different backgrounds and obtained (153) effective sample valid for statistical analysis. SPSS was used for the descriptive analysis of the data obtained from the questionnaire. The study showed that the source of information that had the highest impact on the health information came from specialists and personal experience, while each of media and reference groups had a lesser impact on building health information.
