Adding to SDG 3 (good health and wellbeing) and 16 (peace, justice and strong institutions), fear of crime (FOC) can restrict one’s daily physical and mental activities and reduce quality of life. In order to approach the fear of crime (FOC) on a more individual basis, this paper examines the influence of environmental and individual factors on the FOC.

The Lancet Report - Stillbirth in low and middle-income countries
Highlighting the data behind stillbirths to bring about change, this article and video supports SDG 3. 2.6 million babies worldwide are stillborn each year. The majority of these are preventable. The Lancet partnered with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to find solutions to end this silent scandal.
This study performed a retrospective study on the hormonal and metabolic effects of cross-sex hormone therapy (CSHT) in a small cohort of transgender patients. Research findings contribute to SDG 3 (good health and well-being) and SDG 10 (reduced inequalities).
SDG 3.3 sets a target of combating viral hepatitis. Sub-Saharan Africa carries a substantial portion of the global burden of viral hepatitis. Countries in the region face unique challenges, with the development of elimination strategies often hindered by a lack of good quality data. This paper outlines the current status of hepatitis C in sub-Saharan Africa and provides expert recommendations from across the region, including simplified diagnostic and treatment algorithms for use in low-resource settings.
Three or more cups of coffee daily halves mortality risk in patients with both HIV and HCV. This finding is based on a large nation-wide study in France. This is relevant to SDG 3 and specifically the targets concerned with the reduction of infection diseases, like hepatitis C (HCV).

Patients in China can face long delays in completing their testing and initiating treatment when newly diagnosed with HIV. This study aimed to improve linkage to care by assessing the effectiveness of an intervention involving rapid point-of-care testing, trialled in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, south China. The intervention increased the number of patients starting treatment and reduced mortality. However, difficulties in ensuring patients remained in the care cascade were noted and highlights the challenges China faces in meeting the SDG 3 goals.
SDG 3.3 sets a target of combating viral hepatitis. Sub-Saharan Africa carries a substantial portion of the global burden of viral hepatitis. Countries in the region face unique challenges, with the development of elimination strategies often hindered by a lack of good quality data. This paper outlines the current status of hepatitis B in sub-Saharan Africa and provides expert recommendations from across the region, including simplified diagnostic and treatment algorithms for use in low-resource settings.
