Clinical assessment of speech abnormalities in Cerebellar Ataxia (CA) is subjective and prone to intra- and inter-clinician inconsistencies. Contributing to SDGs 3 and 10, this paper presents an automated objective method based on a single syllable repetition task to detect and quantify speech-timing anomalies in ataxic speech. Such a technique is non-invasive, reliable, fast, cost-effective and can be used in the comfort of home without any professional assistance.

This article addresses goal 3 by investigating the use of MRI for early Alzheimer's disease diagnosis.
The need for improved and safely managed sanitation facilities is acute in dense informal settlements in rapidly urbanizing areas. One of the key factors influencing the cost-effectiveness and reliability of service provision in informal settlements is the ability to optimize waste collection from latrines with variable use patterns that are spatially dispersed within an informal settlement. This study investigates how latrine sensors could be used to estimate waste fill levels and improve servicing efficiency for forty latrines in Nairobi, Kenya, supporting SDGs 3, 6 and 9.
This conference summary presents world bone experts’ most current consensus positions for appropriate practice regarding densitometric monitoring of bone health, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry machine cross-calibration, care of bone in instance of spinal cord injury, periprosthetic and orthopedic bone health, transgender medicine, and pediatric bone health. The article furthers SDG 3.
This chapter advances SDG 3 by exploring the current state of design as applied to global health, models of how it is carried out, and some of the questions that arise for practitioners.

This journal article addresses SDGs 3 and 9 by discussing how brain-computer interfaces and robotics can hasten recovery of, for example, normal walking following stroke and other brain injuries.
The authors of this meta-analysis assessed the usefulness of multidisciplinary care teams (MCTs) in reducing amputation rates in adults with diabetes. They found that after implementing an MCT amputation prevention program, healthcare systems experience a very significant reduction in amputations. The study furthers SDG 3 (Good health and well-being) by illustratating the effectiveness of investing in an MCT prevention program in terms of ‘possible limbs saved’.
