World Hepatitis Day: Uniting in the Fight Against a Global Health Threat

World Hepatitis Day, observed on 28th July each year, is a global initiative to raise awareness about viral hepatitis, promote prevention, and encourage testing and treatment. The World Health Organization (WHO) and partners across the globe come together to highlight the urgency of eliminating hepatitis by 2030. This article delves into the significance of World Hepatitis Day, the types of hepatitis, prevention methods, available treatments, and how you can get involved.

Rare Disease Day: An Insight into SDG Resources and Global Awareness Initiatives

Elsevier,

Handbook of Food and Feed from Microalgae: Production, Application, Regulation, and Sustainability, 2023, pp 603-610

This chapter aligns with Goal 2: Zero Hunger and Goal 12: Responsible Consumption by exploring the energy and water consumption needs of microalgal production for food production to determine whether microalgae can be considered a sustainable food.
This freely accessible Special collection highlights journal articles and book chapters focussing on nature and biodiversity in celebration of the 2023 RELX SDG Inspiration Day on June 13th where thought leaders, corporate representatives, investors, government and NGOs explore issues, practical engagement and ideas in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
This Article supports Sustainable Development Goal 3 by estimating the proportion of dementia attributable to hypertension, finding an overall global population attributable fraction of 15.8%. Results were also broken down by region and age. The authors note that the estimates from this study could help to inform public health policy at global and national levels.
This Comment article supports SDG 3 and 16 by highlighting how complex humanitarian settings have become fertile environments for spreading misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation, and how the 2021 release of the Oxford Statement on International Law Protection in Cyberspace, which touches on sovereignty, incitement, human rights, criminal law, general rules of international humanitarian law, and international criminal law, is an important first step to address this type of disinformation.
In this episode of the “World We Want” podcast series, the editors of the new book Oceans and Human Health: Opportunities and Impacts talk to Márcia Balisciano about about the fascinating connections between the ocean and human health, spanning from wellbeing and mental health, to medicinal resources, plastics, food and nutrition, and the health risks of polluted oceans.
Distribution of TB occurrence according anaemia severity
Tuberculosis is often reported in people with HIV. In this secondary post-hoc analysis of the A5274 REMEMBER clinical trial, the authors identified that people with HIV and moderate-to-severe anaemia had a higher incidence of TB than those with HIV who did not have anaemia. Addressing two key diseeases listed in SDG 3.3 (HIV and TB), the authors call for close monitoring of people with HIV and anaemia.
Schematic showing the proposed mechanism involved in HIV-1 Tat-mediated microglial ferroptosis.
This study underscores a novel mechanism(s) underlying HIV-1 Tat-mediated ferroptosis and microglial activation involving miR-204–ACSL4 signaling.
The authors explore automatic and early detection methods for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) using deep learning techniques in order to improve the speed and accessibility of current testing methods. They propose a deep transfer learning model as a new approach for accurately detecting categories of Alzheimer's disease. The research serves SDG 3's aim in highlighing and seeking better treatment for AD, an increasingly serious global public health issue.
