This paper proposes a Coloured Petri Net modelling technique as a tool for modelling the community pharmacy dispensing process. The novelty of this approach is the ability to perform the evaluation of process reliability and efficiency in a single simulation-based model. This should support SDG 3 (good health and well-being) and 12 (responsible consumption and production).

Directly supporting SDGs 3 (good health and wellbeing), 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land), this piece outlines current research on the accumulation of microplastics and their associated contaminants in a variety of organisms including humans.

Kidney International, Volume 95, Issue 2, January 2019, Pages 242-248.

This editorial outlines opportunities to improve our understanding of disparities in kidney disease, the best ways for them to be addressed, and how to streamline efforts toward achieving kidney health equity across the globe. This serves to address SDG 3 (good health and well-being) and SDG 10 (reduced inequalities).

Supporting SDG 9.5 (enhance scientific research), this review provides a roadmap of current analytical methods for microplastic and nanoplastic research. Enhanced research capabilities in this area may in turn support progress towards SDGs 12 (responsible consumption and production), 14 (life below water) and 15 (life on land).
Furthering goals 3 and 11, this study highlights the need for Hong Kong to develop more integrated, human-centric, location- and justice-based environmental policies, and the need to adopt evidence-based policy-decision-making to properly address air pollution-induced enviornmental injustice. Nominated in January 2018 for the Elsevier Atlas Award.
To support goal 3, XpertHR have produced a podcast that outlines the importance of mental health first-aid at work.
The 2018 Lancet Countdown report directly contributes to SDG 13 (climate action), SDG 3 (good health and well-being) and SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure). The report indicates that climate change is the biggest global health threat of the 21st century. Stressing the need for governments to focus on decarbonising economies, in order to reduce rates of cardiovascular and respiratory disease, and reduce risk factors linked to infectious disease and mental illness.
Developing SDG 3 (good health and well-being) and SDG 10 (reduced inequalities), this article explores transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) populations in health care settings. Findings suggest that TGNC people are exposed to a variety of social stressors, including stigma, discrimination, and bias events that contribute to mental health problems.

Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, Volume 34, October 2018, Pages 43-47.

The SDGs offer oppotunities for closer environment-poverty integration. However, to be transformative, they need a broadening of measures and indicators. This paper argues that indicators should include constituent roles of environment in wellbeing and poverty, furthering goals 1 and 3.
