This Article supports SDG 3 by highlighting the importance of not just measuring life expectancy but also disability-free life expectancy as an indicator of population health, and showing that in Hong Kong, a word leader in life expectancy, there has been a trend of increasing disability burden, particularly in women. The authors discuss the public health implications of their findings.
Background: Hong Kong is among the many populations that has experienced the combined impacts of social unrest and the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite concerns about further deteriorations in youth mental health globally, few epidemiological studies have been conducted to examine the prevalence and correlates of major depressive episode (MDE) and other major psychiatric disorders across periods of population-level changes using diagnostic interviews. Methods: We conducted a territory-wide household-based epidemiological study from 2019 to 2022 targeting young people aged 15–24 years.
This article supports SDGs 9 and 11 by exploring the technological aspects of the Internet of Things, emphasizing blueprints, complexity, challenges, and future directions to improve performance, network security, and stability.
This article supports SDGs 7 and 13 by comparing the economy and carbon emissions of electrochemical energy storage (EES) and hydrogen energy storage (HES) in renewable energy storage, and it was found that lithium-ion batteries and certain HES routes perform best in LCOS and carbon emissions, supporting their use to achieve future decarbonization goals.
This Article supports SDGs 3 and 13 by providing Long-term estimation of glacier mass balance using geospatial techniques in Western Himalayas, Ladakh, India.
This study estimates the prevalence and trends of undernutrition in all countries of SEAR using national level data. This is the first study to study indicators of malnutrition at the regional level and estimating the effect of current food policies on future health of children.
This study supports SDG 3 by examining the incidence of stroke among people with disabilities, a group who are more likely to have risk factors for stroke. The incidence was found to be almost 2.5 times higher than in non-disabled people, and occuring 20 years earlier. Public health measures are urgently needed to address this problem.
This Article supports Sustainable Development Goal 3 by estimating the prevalence of dementia in people aged 60 years and older in Bangladesh, finding an overall prevalence of 8%, and identifying positive associations between dementia prevalence and female sex, advanced age, and lower education levels.
