Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) Prevention Manifesto Launch
REHIS partner, ASH Scotland, along with another nine of Scotland’s biggest health charities, is launching a manifesto highlighting the need for action on the prevention of Non Communicable Disease (NCD) (such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes and lung disease).
The report looks at the impact of tobacco, obesity and alcohol on the health of Scotland and proposes a focus on taking action at a population-level to further drive down the impact these risk factors are having on Scotland’s health, particularly in its most deprived communities.
Ahead of next year’s Scottish Parliament elections, the charities are calling on all of Scotland’s political parties to commit to bold action to prevent NCD’s.
