FGM is a violation of human rights. FGM affects girls'/women’s physical and psychological health.
Due to multiple cellular blocks in transcription, HIV-1 latency can only be reversed in a minor fraction of infected but potentially virus-producing CD4+ T cells from infected patients. New insights into the regulation of transcription elongation factor P-TEFb as a crucial rate-limiting step in the emergence of HIV-1 from latency may help design more effective latency reversal agents during HIV-1 infection.
This article ties to SDG 3. This scoping review looks at the role of place in refugee mental health.
Graphical abstract
This paper looks at the effect of the SARS-CoV2 vaccination on people living in HIV, in terms of their immune responses.
This study investigated the survival and predictors of mortality among HIV/AIDS patients that started taking antiretroviral therapy.
Measured thoracic levels and distances on axial CT images
Background: In patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), thoracic morphology and its role in respiratory function is conditioned by anthropometric factors, as well as by pathological changes. While the lungs are continuously monitored, examinations of potential thoracic cage adaptations to the disease are rare. Hence, the aim of this study was to investigate thoracic configuration, and its correlation to spirometry measures over time. Methods: In total, 344 high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) examinations from 90 patients were assessed and analysed. Those results were subsequently related to spirometry measurements performed within the same period. Results: The cohort displayed no homogenous change in thoracic configuration over time, and correlation between thoracic area and spirometry variables could not be supported statistically. Conclusions: Although the current study included a larger cohort of patients with CF compared to previous studies on thoracic morphology, no patient group-specific changes in thoracic configuration were revealed. Furthermore, no correlations between structural findings and functional respiratory measurements were found.
This article ties to SDG 3. Analyzing relations among neuronal, endocrine, immune, and biochemical signatures of trauma and internalizing and externalizing behaviors, including the role of personality traits in shaping these conducts, this review highlights that the marked effects of traumatic experience on the brain/body involve changes at nearly every level of analysis, from brain structure, function and connectivity to endocrine and immune systems, from gene expression (including in the gut) to the development of personality.

Our strengths-based narrative portrait titled Speak from the Heart
This Personal View supports SDGs 3 and 16 by presenting a case study using Indigenist health humanities to offer a way to understand planetary health. The authors indicate that embedding Indigenous knowledge and voices into planetary health education is important as part of decolonising learning in health professional education.
