World Mental Health Day, a programme of the World Federation for Mental Health, has been observed on October 10th since 1992. Quality, accessible primary health care is the foundation for universal health coverage and is urgently required as the world grapples with the current health emergency. To mark World Mental Health Day 2020, Elsevier presents a curated, open access collection of 25 journal articles and book chapters focused on making mental health a reality for everyone, everywhere.
By mapping the state of research within each SDG area, this report acknowledges the pivotal role research plays in tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges. It aims to better understand the research community’s global sustainable development efforts and assesses the progress made, as well as unmet research needs.

Transport, a well-recognised determinant of health, is particularly salient to well-being and equitable health outcomes amongst older people and people living with disabilities living in low-and middle-income countries. Contributing to SDGs 3, 10 and 11, this study explores the facilitators and barriers for safe and accessible transportation from the perspectives of older people and those living with disabilities in Sri Lanka.
The article examines the way in which artificial intelligence based decision making technologies assess individuals within society to reach a decision. These tools often have elements embedded within them which result in a decision which is disadvantageous to groups who have historically experienced discrimination, disadvantage, disempowerment and marginalisation including (but not limited to) people with disabilities. Contributing to SDGs 3, 4, 9, 10 and 16, the authors recommend that legislature should respond accordingly by identifying contexts in which it is mandatory to employ human decision-makers and by enacting the relevant legislation.
On Monday 24 August 2020 – at the beginning of World Water Week - RELX announced the winners of the 2020 RELX Environmental Challenge. Now in its 10th year, the RELX Environmental Challenge supports innovative solutions that improve sustainable access to safe water and sanitation where it is at risk, contributing to SDGs 1, 3, 6 and 10.
Each year the RELX Environmental Challenge is awarded to projects that best demonstrate how they can provide sustainable access to safe water or sanitation. In the past decade, the company has awarded $750,000 to projects and solutions that improve the world’s water quality and sanitation.
