4 Calls to Action

Malnutrition (as undernutrition) is a significant public health issue. 1 in 10 older people in Scotland today are at risk of, or living with malnutrition, however from our own prevalence data, we think this may be an underestimate, with as many 30% of older people living in the community at risk.

Malnutrition is largely preventable and treatable but despite this, the problem has been largely ignored.

Together with our impact and learning, and our stakeholders, we have identified 4 simple calls to action that, if implemented, would make a positive difference to older people's lives and reduce costs to the health service.
