Employers should address rising stress and mental health risk through collaboration between internal departments and insurance providers. A dedicated employee risk manager is part of the solution, argues Andrew Woolnough, value propositions director at Willis Employee Benefits. Companies have an important role to play in advancing SDG 3.4 to promote mental health and well-being.

Cancer Moonshot Report
With this report, Elsevier aims to benchmark and map out the global landscape of cancer research to provide helpful new insights. Along with other materials, this benchmark report will offer the research community, pubic, policymakers and research funding organizations information on the current state of cancer related research. We hope this report will be used to inform the development of new operational approaches, priorities, policies and funding strategies to produce new knowledge that will address key challenges related to cancer in the most effective, efficient and impactful way possible.
Accurate estimation of the global burden of HIV is essential for tracking the progress toward achieving one of the key components of SDG3.3: to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030. This study uses the well-established Global Burden of Disease Study methods to estimate the impact of HIV on health in 2015. Not only do these findings provide insight into where the greatest gains are to be made, but also the discrepancies with other estimates emphasise the importance of accurate and reliable accounting.
Directly contributing to both SDG 3 (good health and well-being) and SDG 10 (reduced inequalities), this research aims to support therapists who work with young gay and bisexual men to conduct therapy for stress management and HIV prevention.

This study unveils gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM) continue to have disproportionately high burdens of HIV infection in countries of low, middle and high income in 2016. In particular, incidence densities of HIV in MSM are unacceptably high in countries as diverse as China, Kenya, Thailand, the UK, and the USA. This research directly relates to SDG 10 (reduced inequalities) and SDG 3 (good health and well-being).
By 2020, the UN has set a target to reduce the number of new HIV infections to below 500 000. This Personal View article puts the aim in the context of previous prevention targets and highlights the research and real-world evidence that supports HIV prevention programmes. By focusing on a broad set of approaches (such as condom distribution, education, and access to antiretroviral therapy) and ensuring they are applied to the most relevant populations the ambitious 2020 targets might be met. This contributes to SDG3 and the bid to end the AIDS epidemic.

Contributing to SDGs 3 (Good Health and Well-being) and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals), this concept note explores an integrated approach for the international drug control regime.
Using data from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (GBD 2013), this article reports the past, present, and anticipated burden of disease in young people aged 10–24 years from 1990 to 2013 using data on mortality, disability, injuries, and health risk factors. It shows that injuries, mental health disorders, and sexual and reproductive health problems are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in young people. Understanding young people's health will be important to the achievement of SDG 3 targets.
This study focuses on the how human displacement of the Sahariya - indigenous tribal conservation refugees in central India - has affected their mental health, supporting knowledge on SDG 3 Good health and wellbeing. Factors examined include food and water (in)security and poverty. The loss of homeland and relocation programmes is seen as detrimental to mental health.
