This Viewpoint supports SDGs 3 and 10 by examining, in view of the potential termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme in the USA, the implications for government funding of health care for immigrant populations such as undocumented migrants, and the importance of ensuring equitable access to health care for all population groups.

With AI-driven labor market transformations being affected by economic troubles and other factors, this article explores the strategies leaders are using to help workers navigate these changes. Specifically, leaders are stepping up investing in at least four strategies to prepare workers for the prevailing disruption and empower them to successfully navigate the change while ensuring healthy work cultures and compelling work opportunities for all.

This study provides a better understanding of the burrowing behaviour of the sub-legal size clams discarded on the sediment after being disturbed and contributes important data to improve practices for minimizing mortality of dislodged clams that are discarded on the sediment surface.
This Article supports SDG 3 by analysing follow-up data from over 200 000 people with HIV from 20 cohorts in North America and Europe who had started ART up to 20 years previously, and showing that estimated life expectancy for people with HIV on long-term ART with high CD4 cell counts is only a few years lower than that in the general population, irrespective of when ART was started.
This content aligns with Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing as well as Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities by emphasizing the importance of gender-specific medicine in pharmaceutical development and global healthcare, aiming to improve health outcomes for all genders. By addressing the challenges faced by the pharmaceutical industry in integrating knowledge on sex-specific biological differences into drug development programs, the chapter advocates for strategies to promote equity in healthcare access and outcomes. Additionally, it recognizes the importance of addressing gender disparities in healthcare and advocating for approaches that ensure equal access to gender-specific pharmaceuticals. Through these efforts, the content supports the goal of reducing inequalities in healthcare access and outcomes, ultimately contributing to the promotion of good health and well-being for all individuals, regardless of gender.
One Health and the Exposome embrace a broad view of human health and its environmental drivers as well as provide various tools and modes of operation to systematically uncover pathways linking poor health outcomes with their root causes to inform interventions supporting the WHO SDG3.

Habitat conversion and resource utilization have been identified in the One Health approach as drivers of poor ecosystem health that can lead to disease spillover events supporting SDG3.
This Viewpoint supports Sustainable Development Goal 3 by discussing the effects of the FDA's approval of aducanumab, a treatment for early-stage Alzheimer's disease, despite its limited clinical benefit, as well as the decision of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to restrict coverage to individuals enrolled in clinical trials. The authors note that these decisions have led to a confusing landscape for patients with Alzheimer's disease.
Cell type-specific transcriptional differences between brain tissues from donors with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and unaffected controls have been well documented, but few studies have rigorously interrogated the regulatory mechanisms responsible for these alterations. We performed single nucleus multiomics (snRNA-seq plus snATAC-seq) on 105,332 nuclei isolated from cortical tissues from 7 AD and 8 unaffected donors to identify candidate cis-regulatory elements (CREs) involved in AD-associated transcriptional changes.

Shaquita Bell, who is both Black and Indigenous, recently became the 33rd Native-identifying full professor of medicine in the USA. Bell's work questions the idea of race as a driver of health outcomes, and aims to improve understanding of race as a social rather than a biological construct.
