  • Scot-PHO Burden of Disease Update

    Created: 20/07/2017

    The Burden of Disease section of the ScotPHO website has been updated. 

    Researchers from NHS Health Scotland and the Information Services Division of NHS National Services Scotland have published new analysis of Scotland’s health. The researchers have used a globally recognised approach, referred to as ‘Burden of Disease’ to quantify the difference between the ideal of living to old age in good health, and the situation where healthy life is shortened by illness, injury, disability and early death. The analysis identifies the most common causes of disease burden in Scotland in 2015.

    To find out more, or if you would like to receive updates on the Scottish Burden of Disease study and have the chance to participate in further developing it, please contact the SBoD project team at [email protected]
