NCD Prevention: Reducing the Impact of Health Harming Products

20 September 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Last year, Holyrood partnered with the newly formed NCD Alliance Scotland – comprised of nine of Scotland’s leading health charities – on the public health day of its Health and Care Festival. We are delighted to be partnering with the NCD Alliance Scotland once again for this one-day event, to consider what progress has been made in reducing NCD related deaths and ill-health, and discuss what further policy action is required.  

Particular focus will be placed on improving health outcomes by addressing the “commercial determinants of health,” for example, the pricing, marketing and availability of products, and engaging the public in such discussions. Sessions will also explore how public health fits within the context of a wellbeing economy, and how such an approach could also improve the health and wellbeing of Scottish citizens, whilst reducing inequalities.   

Taking place during the Global Week of Action on NCDs, this event will bring together policymakers, public health practitioners, academics and more to discuss these important issues.
