Methods: A convenient sampling method was used to select 508 stroke patients from the neurology department and physiatry department of fore third-grade hospitals in Guiyang from November 2017 to March 2018. A total of 508 stroke patients were investigated and analyzed using the Chronic Diseases Health Literacy Survey Scale, the Health Promotion Lifestyle Scale II, and the General Survey Form. Results: The overall score of healthy behavior of stroke patients was (31.26±7.74) points, the overall score of healthy behavior of stroke patients was (123.26±23.74) points; Pearson correlation analysis: health literacy level and healthy behavior level were positively correlated (r=0.625,P<0.01); the relationship between the level of healthy behavior and the improvement of health will which is from the health literacy is the strongest (r=0.621,P<0.01); the correlation between the health literacy and the self-actualization level which is from healthy behaviors is the highest (r=0.562,P<0.01). Conclusion: The level of health literacy is positively correlated with the level of health behavior, and there is a positive correlation between each dimension.
