Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are responsible for life-long production of blood and immune cells. HSC transplantation (HSCT) is the original cell therapy which can cure hematological disorders but also has the potential to treat other diseases if technical and safety barriers are overcome. It is hoped that HSCT can become safe enough to treat non-life-threatening disorders like allergy, psychiatric disorders, HIV, and aging.
Blood donation saves lives, and the communication between blood centers and donors plays a vital role in this. Smart apps are now considered an important communication tool, and could be best utilized in blood donation if they are designed to fit the users’ needs and preferences.

Overviews the Ebola virus, endemic in Central Africa and cause of severe hemorrhagic fevers. Although no licensed treatment is available to treat disease, vaccines have recently been licensed in Europe, the USA and elsewhere. The goal of SDG 3.3 is 3.3 the end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases and combat hepatitis, water-borne diseases and other communicable diseases.
This content supports the SDG Goal 3 by highlighting that management of chronic hepatitis B requires careful consideration of treatment indications given the requirement for long-term therapy in most patients. Options include nucleo(s)tide analogs (NA) and pegylated interferon alfa (PEG-IFN), both with their own advantages and limitations.

This content supports the SDG Goal 3 and 6 by describing hepatitis A virus and hepatitis E virus, which are enterically transmitted and the most common cause of viral hepatitis worldwide.
The nature of armed conflict throughout the world is intensely dynamic.
Complementary Feeding (CF) involves an array of behaviors ranging from producing or purchasing food to preparing and feeding it to the child. Nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions support different dimensions of improved CF, including dietary diversity, adequate frequency and daily intake, food hygiene, responsive feeding, and parenting practices. Beyond messages specific to what to feed young children, interventions to improve CF could address norms related to early child development; family dynamics; water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH)
This chapter aligns with Goal 2: Zero Hunger, Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing, and Goal 13: Climate Action by exploring how extreme flooding has significant implications for local, regional, and national populations, particularly regarding agriculture and food supply.
