This Review supports SDGs 3 and 6, focusing on the complex ways that multiple factors interact during droughts to influence HIV treatment adherence. The authors suggest that economic and livelihood challenges resulting from food and water insecurity during droughts have the biggest impact on adherence.

The largest US cancer health disparity exists in prostate cancer, with Black men having more than a two-fold increased risk of dying from prostate cancer compared to all other races. Studies on biology and access to healthcare similarly highlight the need for increased representation of men from underserved racial groups, particularly Black men, in translational and clinical research to fully comprehend and appreciate the tumour heterogeneity.

The data presented in this study indicate air pollution (AP) induces an epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition-like phenotype of BEAS-2B cells in 3D spheroid cultures. This opens new avenues for drug development for the treatment of lung diseases induced by AP. The 3D spheroid cell culture is a novel, innovative and physiologically relevant model for culturing a variety of cells. It is a versatile tool for both high-throughput studies and for identifying molecular mechanisms involved in bronchial epithelial cell (patho)physiology.

This Article supports SDG 3 by describing the prevalence of HBV infection among children who received hepatitis B vaccination at birth. Prevalence was lowest in those who received vaccination within 24 hours of birth, although there was still substantial risk of infection even with timely vaccination.

Aquaculture has been viewed as a potential pathway to healthy and sustainable diets by increasing global nutrient-rich food production while minimizing environmental impacts. Here, we explore environmental and nutritional synergies, trade-offs, and constraints that illuminate the role of aquaculture to deliver on this double bottom line.

Background: Human impacts on earth-system processes are overshooting several planetary boundaries, driving a crisis of ecological breakdown. This crisis is being caused in large part by global resource extraction, which has increased dramatically over the past half century. We propose a novel method for quantifying national responsibility for ecological breakdown by assessing nations’ cumulative material use in excess of equitable and sustainable boundaries. Methods: For this analysis, we derived national fair shares of a sustainable resource corridor.
