Efforts to provide a normed standard for what constitutes intimate partner violence, child abuse, and neglect have clashed with attempts to recognize the impact of cultural variability on the experiences of family maltreatment. Contributing to SDGs 3 and 5, this chapter takes on this challenging intersection by answering vital questions about the operationalization of intimate partner violence and child maltreatment, including how to integrate the need for universal standards with considerations of cultural context.
Each year the RELX Environmental Challenge is awarded to projects that best demonstrate how they can provide sustainable access to safe water or sanitation. In the past decade, the company has awarded $750,000 to projects and solutions that improve the world’s water quality and sanitation. This article, using innovative parallax storytelling technology, looks at the tangible impact of the RELX Environmental Challenge.

To mark the tenth anniversary of the RELX Environmental Challenge and the announcement of this year’s winners, we invite you to join us for SDG 6: From here to there - celebrating 10 years of innovation and exploring the next decade of WASH action, to take a look back over the past 10 years and to consider the decade of action ahead - what will it really take to achieve SDG6: clean water and sanitation for all?

This book chapter advances SDGs 3 and 17 by discussing the potential impact of dementia on creativity, physical activity, and exercise participation and whether exercise and creativity may each exert individual effects on the maintenance and/or facilitation of cognitive health. This chapter explores the context of biological and theoretical mechanisms underlying dementia and provide recommendations for future research experiments unifying physical exercise and creative activities into tailored interventions designed to better comprehend this disease and perhaps counteract the devastating implications dementia prognoses present to optimal physical and mental functioning across the human life span.

Diagnosis and Management in Dementia, Volume 1, August 2020, Pages 127-146

This book chapter advances SDGs 3 and 17 by focusing on providing a brief overview of genes associated with sporadic (late-onset) Alzheimer's disease (AD). Despite decades of research, no current and reliable test is currently available for the diagnosis of AD. Genetic biomarkers are promising for both diagnostic tools and tailored profiling therapy.
This book chapter advances SDGs 3 and 17 by discussing available data regarding the effects of genetic variants on the clinical and pathological characteristics of “frontotemporal dementia” (FTD). The term “frontotemporal dementia” (FTD) defines a group of related diseases resulting from progressive degeneration of the temporal and frontal lobes. These areas play a significant role in decision-making, behavioral control, emotion, language, and motor functions.
