Our health is largely shaped by the world around us—by the conditions in which we grow, work, and live. These conditions include the commercial determinants of health, the private sector activities which influence our physical and social environments, our available evidence and solutions, and even our national discourse and understanding around key health and social issues.

In this webinar, marking World Obesity Day 2024, Public Health Scotland place a spotlight on the commercial determinants of health within the context of our food system. Our speakers will seek to improve our understanding of the commercial determinants of health and their impact; provide insight into policy actions in Scotland to address them, and; offer tips on effective ways to communicate about these issues in ways which help to build support for the wider changes needed that will enable all of us to thrive and be healthy.
