Growing political attention to antimicrobial resistance (AMR) offers a rare opportunity for achieving meaningful action. Many governments have developed national AMR action plans, but most have not yet implemented policy interventions to reduce antimicrobial overuse.

Existing WHO estimates of the prevalence of mental disorders in emergency settings are more than a decade old and do not reflect modern methods to gather existing data and derive estimates.

Cement industry is a potential anthropogenic source of air pollution. Emissions from cement plants are one of the major sources of global warming.

Gender analysis along the agricultural value chain enhances our understanding about the roles performed by men and women in the value chain and in forward and backward linkages, their access to productive resources, opportunities available for valueaddition and benefit sharing, both as individuals and group enterprises.

Nectar robbing – foraging nectar illegitimately – has negative, neutral, or positive efects on maternal function of plant reproduction and/or on pollinators.

A fuzzy random conditional value-at-risk-based linear programming (FCVLP) model was proposed in this study for dealing with municipal solid waste (MSW) management problems under uncertainty. FCVLP improves upon the existing fuzzy linear programming and fuzzy random conditional value-at-risk methods by allowing analysis of the risks

Although brown macroalgae holds potential as an alternative feedstock, its utilization by conventional microbial platforms has been limited due to the inability to metabolize one of the principal sugars, alginate. Here, we isolate Vibrio sp. dhg, a fast-growing bacterium that can efficiently assimilate alginate.

Several studies assessed the association of maternal folate intake with infant asthma risk, but the fndings are controversial. We performed a meta-analysis to clarify the association between maternal folate intake and infant asthma risk.

There is evidence that pathogenic bacteria can adapt to antiseptics upon repeated exposure. More alarming is the concomitant increase in antibiotic resistance that has been described for some pathogens. Unfortunately, efects of adaptation and cross-adaptation are hardly known for oral pathogens, which are very frequently exposed to antiseptics.

This analysis reflects on experiences and lessons from four country settings—Zambia, India, Sweden and South Africa—on building collaborations in local health systems in order to respond to complex health needs.
