The paper entitled Improving Health in Scotland – the Challenge is published today. It provides a framework for action over the coming 12 to 15 months. It indicates a role for the Scottish Executive, NHS boards, local government, voluntary sector, private sector and the public to work in partnership to improve Scotland’s health and narrow the gap between the most and least affluent communities. Today at the Healthy Scotland Convention, the third in a series, around 300 people will gather to celebrate the success of efforts to date and plan further action to improve Scotland’s health record.

Copies of Improving Health in Scotland - the Challenge have been placed in the Parliament’s Reference Centre (Bib. number 26922).
