Coral atolls are at risk from rising sea level, what can be done to enhance island buidling processes
The paper elucidates the importance of monitoring and integrating conserved areas into area-based conservation efforts to effectively achieve the 30% protection goal by 2030, emphasizing transparency and accountability in tracking changes to protected and conserved areas for maximizing benefits to biodiversity.
The paper addresses the urgency of communicating the worsening anthropogenic-driven species extinction crisis to diverse audiences and proposes a threatened species recovery report card as a tool to showcase conservation progress, emphasizing the need for immediate action to prevent further biodiversity loss.
Proper regulation is essential to ensure that such a system benefited those in need, and that those who provided organs are properly compensated. Without significant policy changes, however, far too many patients will continue to languish on waiting lists until they run out of time. The goal of SDG3 is that everyone should have a good health and well-being.
Human health, in the coming decades (and already in some “front-running” regions), is in peril. Although some authorities warn that over-stating such risks can induce paralysis and despair, under-stating them will not generate the intense action that is required. The impact of climate change on the Earth system is now so significant that the next ice age will likely be delayed by at least 50,000 years [201]. If humans do not rapidly change their collective behavior, then this may be their most enduring legacy. It is hoped that this chapter makes a small contribution to SDG3.

With a pressing climate emergency and increasing interconnectedness, the need for action on health at a global level is greater than ever. Achieving Universal Health Coverage with a strong base in primary healthcare is essential. This must be accompanied by policies to address the socioeconomic and environmental determinants of ill health, supporting SDG3.

Artificial Intelligence in Clinical Practice, How AI Technologies Impact Medical Research and Clinics

2024, Pages 395-399

To harness the power and promise of AI in global health, adequate investment must be made in communication, computer systems, and supporting personnel to collect, curate, and manage the data necessary to enable benefits and minimize harm from the use of AI-related tools. In developed countries, this has either occurred or is underway. Developing countries run the risk of widening the digital divide if this does not occur. This chapter supports SDG3.
This Article supports Sustainable Development Goal 3 by calculating the proportion of dementia in Australia attributable to 11 potentially modifiable risk factors. They found that 38% of dementia was attributable to these risk factors (increasing to 41% when a 12th risk factor, traumatic brain injury, was added). The authors note that these findings could help to guide culturally specific dementia risk reduction programmes.
This Article supports SDG 3 by showing that, among suicide decedents in NSW, Australia, most had little contact with healthcare in the year before death, suggesting that suicide prevention measures could be introduced in non-healthcare settings such as schools, universities, and workplaces. The authors also note that suicide prevention strategies should also target people with worsening physical health conditions, especially those prescribed opioids, and people with serious mental health conditions who have missed appointments or reduced appointment frequency with mental health professionals.
