The Scottish Government has launched its Programme for Government 2017-18 which sets out the actions it will take in the forthcoming year. A Nation With Ambition outlines the Scottish Government’s commitments to tackling the challenge of poor public health with new initiatives to reduce obesity, boost active travel, improve mental health and tackle air pollution.
