Reducing the consumption of health-harming products like alcohol, tobacco and unhealthy food and drink is one of the key ways to reduce the number of lives lost to, and affected by, None-Communicable Diseases. What’s more, the consumption and availability of health-harming products are often highest in our most deprived areas and so we must take bold action to ensure that the healthy choice is the easy choice for people in Scotland, regardless of where they live.

For the past year, BHF Scotland has been working in coalition with eight leading health charities, calling for action to tackle NCDs which include heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic lung disease and diabetes.

Earlier this month a new poll, commissioned by the coalition revealed that two out of three people (67 per cent) in Scotland think the Scottish Government should be doing more to improve public health. The survey also revealed wide-ranging public support for the introduction of initiatives to tackle the availability, marketing and price and promotion of health harming products.
