The increased demand for Lithium ion batteries (LIB) has highlighted potential problems in the supply chain of raw materials needed for their manufacture. This paper reviews the current state of the LIB supply chain, addresses issues associated with end-of-life, and sheds light on the importance of recycling from the environmental and value chain perspectives, addressing SDGs 7, 9 and 12.
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.

Contributing to SDGs 3, 9 and, this article describes the development of a virtual-reality-enabled Tai-Chi System (VTCS). VTCS integrates Tai-Chi with a series of cutting-edge computer technologies including 4D sensor technology, big-data, signal processing and analysis, human body kinematics, deep learning, virtual reality, and 4D-reconstruction. The system is designed to make Tai-Chi movements suitable to individuals who suffer from mobility disabilities due to diseases or injuries as an accessible rehabilitation and fitness modality.
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.
