This article ties to SDG 3. This research examined the mental health of a cohort of asylum-seeking children, adolescents and their primary caregiver affected by insecure residency while living in the community, compared to refugees and immigrants.
This Article supports SDGs 3 and 6 by demonstrating that polio environmental surveillance by testing wastewater samples is a valuable tool for tracking the distribution of polio and non-polio enteroviruses, and could be instrumental for global poliovirus elimination efforts.
Young adult hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) survivors have impaired health-related quality of life (HRQOL) compared with older adult survivors. Adolescents and YAs are at a developmental stage marked by rapid changes in cognitive, social, and emotional growth and historically have experienced a gap in services relating to their psychosocial needs. Findings confirm the hypothesis that self-efficacy would be pivotal to higher levels of mental function and lower distress.

This Article supports SDG 3 by examining the prevalence of occult HBV infection (HbSAg negative, HBV DNA positive) through a review including 305 studies. The prevalence was noted to be substantial in some populations (high-risk groups) and high-endemicity countries, necessitating improved access to HBV DNA testing.
The lung compartments affected by pulmonary manifestations of IEI include the airways, alveolar space, interstitial space, vasculature, and the pleural space
The lung is a crucial immune organ continuously exposed to the external environment. Genetic defects that impair immune function, called inborn errors of immunity (IEI), often have lung disease as the initial and/or primary manifestation. Common types of lung disease seen in IEI include infectious complications and a diverse group of diffuse interstitial lung diseases.
Treatment with tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) was found to be effective in reducing the occurrence of liver cancer and disease progression in patients with chronic hepatitis B. The treatment also achieved significant viral suppression and improvement in liver fibrosis. This offers hope for individuals with chronic hepatitis B who are at risk of developing liver cancer.
Several studies of adult-onset multiple sclerosis (AOMS) patients have demonstrated that spinal cord volume loss is associated with disease progression and clinical disability; however, complementary studies of young patients with pediatric-onset multiple sclerosis (POMS) are lacking. In the context of SDG Goal 3, this retrospective study aimed to assess spinal cord volume in POMS patients compared with that in healthy controls.
People with any disabilities accounted for a quarter of total deaths. People with disabilities had higher average ages and poor economic conditions. All disability types presented higher mortality rates and lower life expectancy. The major causes of death differed according to the type of disability.
Recommends ways to maximise potential of autonomous vehicles to improve accessibility for disabled persons.
