This study supports SDG 3 and 13 by quantifying the risk and attributable burden of hospitalisations for renal diseases related to ambient temperature, showing that this risk was positively associated with daily mean temperature and was more prominent in women, children aged 0–4 years, and older people aged ≥80 years. The findings highlight the need for the development of more policies to prevent heat-related hospitalisations and to mitigate climate change.

This study supports SDG 3 and 10 by discussing possible determinants of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Brazilian health system through the lenses of health system resilience and geographical inequalities. The findings show that lack of proper planning to improve resilience resulted in the decrease of a quarter of the amount of health-care procedures, increasing already existing health disparities in the country and highlighting the need to allocate resources in socioeconomically vulnerable regions to reduce avoidable deaths.
