Non-Communicable Disease Prevention: Priorities for 2021/22
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, liver disease and lung disease are the leading cause of death and disability in Scotland. As the 2021/22 parliamentary year begins, we have come together with nine leading Scottish health charities to call for urgent action to prioritise public health in the COVID-19 recovery. We must tackle health harming products such as alcohol, tobacco, and unhealthy food and drinks to tackle and prevent NCDs.
As an integral part of the nation’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, we call on the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Government to take meaningful action to reduce the impact of health harming products and to build a healthier Scotland for future generations. This report sets our priority areas for action in the first year of this Parliament.
