Improvements in diagnosis and treatment are enabling people with HIV to liver longer; this study seeks to understand the evolution of comorbidities in an ageing cohort of people with HIV.
Previous studies have shown that people with HIV are at an increased risk of non-communicable diseases, this systematic review and meta-analysis collates data from 188 studies done in 21 sub-Saharan Africa countries and shows that people with HIV have an increased incidence of multiple NCDs, including hypertension, diabetes, and cervical cancer. Although more research is needed, this results highlight the need for improved treatment and prentative approaches to minimise the risk of people with HIV also developing non-comminicable diseases. Good health and wellbeing should not solely be focused on HIV managment; this study shows the growing risk of other diseases that have to be mitigated.

Rehabilitation Robots for Neurorehabilitation in High-, Low-, and Middle-Income Countries
Current Practice, Barriers, and Future Directions
2024, Pages 471-498

This content aligns with Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing and Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities by raising the general and ethical issues around access to rehabilitation robot technologies and discusses them in the context of inclusivity—a term that encompasses affordability and other common issues that may justify limiting or increasing use in low-resource settings in HICs and LMICs.
The environmental burden of food consumption is high in affluent countries like Sweden, and the global food system is accountable for between 21 and 37% of the total anthropogenic global greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE). This paper claims that interventions to improve dietary intake and reduce dietary greenhouse gas emissions (dGHGE) are urgently needed and that adolescence presents a unique time in life to promote sustainable diets. Conclucsion are that food choices and dGHGE per calorie differ by sex in adolescents. Thus, intervention strategies to improve dietary sustainability need to be tailored differently to females and males. Diet quality should also be considered when promoting reduced GHGE diets.
Improving diet quality while simultaneously maintaining planetary health is of critical interest globally. Despite the shared motivation, advancement remains slow, and the research community continues to operate in silos, focusing on certain pairings (diet–climate), or with a discipline-specific lens of a sustainable diet, rather than examining their totality. This review aims to summarize the literature on adherence to a priori defined dietary patterns in consideration of diet quality, metabolic risk factors for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), environmental impacts, and affordability.
This Personal View supports SDGs 3 and 13 by calling for more research into the contribution that physical activity can have in adapting to rising global temperatures and, more broadly, to climate change.

The increased exposure to violence and sexual crimes among Indigenous women, girls, and Two Spirit people results from longstanding historical trauma and anti-Indigenous racism. The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit People (MMIWG2S) movement emerged as a result of the need for governments and organisations in the USA and Canada to act against acute violence towards Indigenous people
