Scot-PHO Burden of Disease Update
- Created: Saturday, 22 July 2017 20:35
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.
