This qualitative study explored experiences of gender discrimination and sexual harassment among male nurses currently working at hospitals in Korea. Male nurses experienced various stereotypes as members of a minority in a female-led profession and experienced gender discrimination by patients, nursing colleagues, and institutions.

This Comment supports SDGs 10 and 3 by highlighting the need to prepare for an increasingly ageing population and the importance of intervening across the lifespan to achieve healthy ageing. The Comment notes the lack of an international agency advocating for older people, and stresses the importance of improving living standards and human rights for this rapidly growing majority.

While recognising the good work carried out in the AI law space, and acknowledging this area needs constant evaluation and agility in approach, this article advances the discussion, which is important given the gravity of the impacts of AI technologies, particularly on vulnerable individuals and groups, and their human rights.

With successful reproduction and recruitment fundamental to the continued persistence of fish populations under future climate conditions, understanding the physiological mechanisms – including taxonomic and population variation – wherein high temperatures lead to reduced reproductive performance is crucial to identify and remediate any reproductive impairment caused by warming aquatic habitats. Future endocrine studies have an important role to play to that end, as understanding the hormone mechanisms that underlie reproductive inhibition at high temperature, as well as extending our understanding of those mechanisms to consider the potential ability for fish to acclimate either through prior developmental thermal experience or via transgenerational and epigenetic mechanisms (e.g., Veilleux et al., 2018), will be crucial for predicting how wild fish populations will be affected by climate warming. The results presented here and elsewhere for other species (e.g., Alix et al., 2020; Servili et al., 2020) have a crucial role to play by serving as a foundation to guide future research into how extreme warm temperatures predicted under future climate scenarios will impact fish reproduction.

The findings from this study support SDGs 10 and 3 by suggesting that mental and physical health impairments following COVID-19 hospitalisation are only weakly associated with the severity of the acute illness, and that other underlying mechanisms are involved. There is a potential to stratify and personalise care to reduce the burden of disease after hospitalisation.
