This Article supports SDGs 3 and 10 by examining socioeconomic inequalities in the 90−90−90 target that affect access to testing and treatment among men, women, and adolescents living with HIV, calling for governments to scale up equitable 95−95−95 target interventions prioritising the reduction of inequalities related to age, rural-urban residence, education, and wealth.
This article ties to SDG 3. In this article the question: "Does internal conflict erode national identity in Sub-Saharan Africa?" is explored in the context of the 2012 Tuareg rebellion in Mali.
This article ties to SDG 3. This article addresses gaps in available measurement methodologies in child protection interventions, and pilots a methodology to assess a package of key child protection interventions in a single, holistic and integrated approach.
An Article in support of SDG 3, assessing whether community mobilisation increases HIV testing, linkage to care, and retention in care over time in intervention relative to control communities.

An estimated 50 million people around the world currently live with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias, dementia being a collective term for progressive syndromes that affect various expressions of cognitive function, such as memory and emotional expression. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for the majority of cases (50 to 70%, varying by country, based on Alzheimer’s Disease International and World Health Organization figures).

This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by focusing on an emblematic delayed-onset pathology often seen after traumatic brain injury—Alzheimer’s disease—and explain its relationship with chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by focusing on polyphenols and flavonoids and their crucial role in decreasing AD symptoms. In addition, it highlights the neuroprotective role of various essential ingredients of plant extracts such as Icariside, Onjisaponin B, Asarones, Liquiritin, Tanshinone IIA (TIIA) and cryptotanshinone (CT), Ginsenoside Rg1, and n-Butylidenephthalide. The efficacy of green nanotechnology are also discussed.
Contamination of urban-garden vegetables with potentially toxic elements is a great problem in developing countries. This study assessed the level of PTEs (Cu, Pb, Cr and Cd) in market-sold vegetables in southwest Nigeria and evaluated the estimated daily intake (EDI) to understand the health implications.
Sustainable wood-based design solutions necessarily presuppose economically, socially, and environmentally reliable sources of wood use for any future designs. However, increasingly unsustainable effects from climate extremity are now prompting the search for alternative forms of use that avoid or forestall those effects.
The Zambezi Riparian Region (ZRR) is a lifeline and home to ∼40 million people who depend heavily on the river basin for their livelihood. It also furnishes 8 of its riparian countries with goods and services on which hydropower production and food security anchor. The sustainability of the ZRR is threatened by extreme climate events. Here, we interrogate consecutive dry days (CDDs), an effective metric of extreme climatic events with implications on drought-driven water availability. We use ensemble empirical mode decomposition (EEMD) to understand CDDs.
