This study supports SDG 3 by examining the incidence of stroke among people with disabilities, a group who are more likely to have risk factors for stroke. The incidence was found to be almost 2.5 times higher than in non-disabled people, and occuring 20 years earlier. Public health measures are urgently needed to address this problem.

Years lived with disability attributable to osteoarthritis are likely to continue to rise, posing a large challenge to health systems, and necessitating increased focus on preventive and treatment measures.
This Article supports SDG 3 by examining the possible effects of hypertension prevention strategies on future dementia and disability occurence. The results suggest that the decrease in dementia and disability due to these interventions is likely to be offset by an increase in the susceptible poulation due to the increase in life expectancy.

This Article supports Sustainable Development Goal 3 by calculating the proportion of dementia in Australia attributable to 11 potentially modifiable risk factors. They found that 38% of dementia was attributable to these risk factors (increasing to 41% when a 12th risk factor, traumatic brain injury, was added). The authors note that these findings could help to guide culturally specific dementia risk reduction programmes.
