The sampling of interstitial fluid for real-time assay requires techniques that are sensitive, rapid, painless, minimally invasive and easy to use by patients. Microneedles can be incorporated into biosensors with subsequent use of these platforms for continuous monitoring or bio-chemical detection of analytes in the dermal interstitial fluid. Supports the goal of SDG 3.8 to achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.

Aged 16, she had attended local school classes but was unable to take exams because she couldn’t prove her identity. Her life changed with a basic legal document most of us take for granted. In April 2019, LexisNexis helped bring Rosnah under the protection of the rule of law through its work with a local mobile court initiative.
In December 2021 RELX held Responsible Supplier Sessions exploring themes including living wage, accessibility and modern slavery prevention. This information is particularly relevant to SDGs 8, 10 and 12.

Humanitarian aid in disasters is critical to saving lives and alleviating human suffering. This paper presents a novel scenario-based robust bi-objective optimization model that integrates medical facility location, casualty transportation, and relief commodity allocation considering triage. The proposed model aims to minimize the total deprivation cost of casualties due to the delayed access to medical services and the total operation cost.
Purpose: In this study, we identify and characterise how organisations have responded, in ways ranging from restoration to radical change, to discontinuities in their product-based service (PBS) supply chains during the COVID-19 pandemic.
