The Scottish Burden of Disease (SBoD) (external website) study is a national, and local, population health surveillance system which monitors how diseases, injuries and risk factors prevent the Scottish population from living longer lives in better health. Burden of disease assessment help us to understand which diseases and injuries pose the greatest threat to population health and wellbeing, which can be used to shape decisions on how to use limited resources for maximum population health benefit.
