The authors of this meta-analysis assessed the usefulness of multidisciplinary care teams (MCTs) in reducing amputation rates in adults with diabetes. They found that after implementing an MCT amputation prevention program, healthcare systems experience a very significant reduction in amputations. The study furthers SDG 3 (Good health and well-being) by illustratating the effectiveness of investing in an MCT prevention program in terms of ‘possible limbs saved’.

A systematic review to investigate the effects of lifestyle interventions on health outcomes for people with metabolic syndrome. The results indicate that Health services should consider implementing lifestyle-intervention programs for people with metabolic syndrome to improve outcomes and prevent progression to chronic disease supporting SDGs 3 and 4.
Cycleways away from traffic with lower concentrations of pollutants from motorised vehicles sometimes result in longer distances and hence require longer travel times, while alternative routes sharing the road with other traffic, sometimes with buses, might result in exposure to higher pollutant concentrations. To help commuter cyclists achieve their objectives of getting to work in the shortest possible time and maximising their health benefits, this paper proposes a bi-objective route choice model, with the minimisation of travel time and pollutant dose as the two objectives. This supports SDGs 3 and 11.
