COVID-19 burden, author affiliation and women's well-being: A bibliometric analysis of COVID-19 related publications including focus on low- and middle-income countries
eClinicalMedicine, Volume 52, October 2022
This Article supports SDG 3 and 5 by highlighting a need for greater involvement of in-country authors on research examining a wider range of gendered COVID-19 impacts, as well as increased representation of diverse topics and publications related to COVID-19 and women's well-being focused on lower income countries.
Impact of a homestead food production program on women's empowerment: Pro-WEAI results from the FAARM trial in Bangladesh
World Development, Volume 158, October 2022
This Study supports SDG 5 and 3 by examining the role of improved women's agency on the pathway from the intervention to nutritional impacts.
Mapping development and health effects of cooking with solid fuels in low-income and middle-income countries, 2000–18: a geospatial modelling study
The Lancet Global Health, Volume 10, October 2022
This Article supports SDG 3 and 7 by estimating the prevalence of solid-fuel use with high spatial resolution to explore subnational inequalities, assess local progress, and assess the effects on health in LMICs without universal access to clean fuels.
Effect modification of greenness on the association between heat and mortality: A multi-city multi-country study
eBioMedicine, Volume 84, October 2022
This Article supports SDG 3 and 13 by analysing a dataset of 452 locations from 24 countries and showing that that the heat-mortality risks differed with greenspace category and the cities with higher greenspace values had lower heat-mortality risk than those with lower greenspace values.

Drawing on their project investigating multiple aspects of Trustworthy Autonomous Systems (TAS), the authors present their 'TAS for Health at Home' findings, exploring how assistive technology could and should be designed to support healthcare at home using principles of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI).
Redox biology, Volume 56, 1 October 2022
Deficits in mitochondrial function and redox deregulation have been attributed to Huntington's disease (HD). However, whether these changes occur in early stages of the disease and can be detected in vivo is still unclear. In this article, the authors analysed changes in mitochondrial function and production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) at early stages and with disease progression.
Health service planning to assess the expected impact of centralising specialist cancer services on travel times, equity, and outcomes: a national population-based modelling study
The Lancet Oncology, Volume 23, September 2022
This Article supports SDG 3 by estimating the impacts of the centralisation of specialist cancer services, focusing on travel time, equity of access, outcomes, and hospital workload. Using rectal cancer surgery centres as an example the authors found increases in travel times but reductions in readmission rates.
Working conditions for hospital-based maternity and neonatal health care workers during extraordinary situations – A pre-/post COVID-19 pandemic analysis and lessons learned
Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare, Volume 33, September 2022
The article suggests actions to reduce the negative effect of pandemics on the healthcare workers in future situations, based on lessons learnt from COVID19.
Participating in a nutrition-sensitive agriculture intervention was not associated with less maternal time for care in a rural Ghanaian district
Current Developments in Nutrition, Volume 6, Issue 10, October 2022, nzac145
This study assesed how participation in an NSA (Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture) intervention affected mothers' time allocation to child care. The observation of women-child pairs participating in the intervention and control arms of the NL (Nutrition Links) project did not reveal any differentials in the mothers’ time for care. In summary, this study found that participating in an NSA intervention was not associated with mothers' time for child care or any care received by the child. However, the odds of care provided by another person was associated with being part of the NL-I (Nutrition Links Intervention) group.
