  • [Editorial] Infertility—why the silence'

    • Authors: The Lancet Global Health
      Abstract: The most common story of the state of reproductive health in many low- and middle-income countries is one of high rates of fertility, limited access to and low use of contraception, and high unmet need for family planning information and services. Indeed, the evidence on these issues is clear, as shown in many research articles and comments published in this journal. But there's one aspect of reproductive health that's conspicuously side-lined from global health research and policy today—infertility.

  • [Comment] Intimate partner violence among women with infertility

    • Authors: Christine Bourey; Sarah Murray
      Abstract: Intimate partner violence (IPV) represents a critical public health problem that impacts mental, physical, and reproductive health throughout the life-course. Infertility is not only an issue of reproductive health, but also a social issue that can influence marital, family, and other interpersonal relationships, particularly in settings where childbearing is highly valued and central to ideas of womanhood. Women experiencing infertility might be socially sanctioned for childlessness or small family sizes in cultures where progeny is among what matters most.

  • [Comment] Precision in prescription: multiple micronutrient supplements in

    • Authors: Anura V Kurpad; Harshpal Singh Sachdev
      Abstract: The programmatic possibility of introducing multiple micronutrient supplements (MMS), which include iron and folic acid, for routine antenatal care in low-income and middle-income countries (LMIC) has been enthusiastically welcomed by many, but it is equally opposed by others. This is reflected in the language of the WHO recommendation,1 which states that more rigorous research is required, specifically, using early ultrasound to date pregnancies accurately and to rigorously evaluate outcomes and the follow-up of infants into childhood.

  • [Comment] Creating healthy and sustainable cities: what gets measured,
           gets done

    • Authors: Billie Giles-Corti; Anne Vernez Moudon, Melanie Lowe, Deepti Adlakha, Ester Cerin, Geoff Boeing, Carl Higgs, Jonathan Arundel, Shiqin Liu, Erica Hinckson, Deborah Salvo, Marc A Adams, Hannah Badland, Alex A Florindo, Klaus Gebel, Ruth F Hunter, Josef Mitáš, Adewale L Oyeyemi, Anna Puig-Ribera, Ana Queralt, Maria Paula Santos, Jasper Schipperijn, Mark Stevenson, Delfien Van Dyck, Guillem Vich, James F Sallis
      Abstract: Since the first Lancet Series on urban design, transport, and health (Series 1) was published in 2016, the urgency to make the transition to healthy and sustainable cities worldwide has intensified. That year, the UN's Sustainable Development Goals1 for promoting prosperity while protecting the planet and ensuring equity came into force. WHO also released its Shanghai Declaration on promoting health in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. At WHO Global Conference on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in 2017, heads of states reiterated their commitment to reduce premature mortality from NCDs by a third by 2030.

  • [Comment] Urban design is key to healthy environments for all

    • Authors: Thiago Herick de Sa; Abraham Mwaura, Cristina Vert, Pierpaolo Mudu, Nathalie Roebbel, Nhan Tran, Maria Neira
      Abstract: Rapidly increasing urbanisation along with ageing populations, climate change, environmental degradation, COVID-19, and other pandemics present substantial challenges for people living in cities and other communities. The capacity to identify and respond to urban challenges related to health, equity, and sustainability varies greatly across national and subnational governments around the globe, because of the available human and financial resources, structures of governance and participation, and existing policy frameworks, which are all important determinants of healthy and sustainable urban environments.

           and health challenges

    • Authors: Honorine van den Broek d’Obrenan; Rachel Huxley
      Abstract: The effects of climate change are inextricably linked with wider health and social challenges. We at C40 Cities—the network of mayors worldwide collaborating to confront the climate crisis—see daily how inequality and illness share similar root causes to the climate crisis. We work with public health teams trying to tackle the obesity and diabetes emergency; air quality officers aiming to reduce urban pollution; and city planners wanting to address traffic, fair access to services, or rising carbon emissions.

  • [Comment] The future is urban: integrated planning policies can enable
           healthy and sustainable cities

    • Authors: Deepti Adlakha; Felix John
      Abstract: The world's urban population has increased drastically during the last century. At the turn of the 20th century, approximately 10% of people lived in cities. By 1950, the world's urban population had grown to 29%.1 Today, more than half of the world's population resides in cities. By 2050, it is expected that at least two-thirds of the world's population, or nearly 7 of 10 people, will live in cities.2 The largest share of this tremendous urban growth will occur in low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs), in cities already carrying a disproportionate share of the global disease burden.

      Abstract: Shu Su and colleagues (February, 2022),1 in their Article on the cost-effectiveness of universal screening for chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in China, found that the five-test universal screening strategy in people aged 18–70 years, implemented within the next 10 years, is the optimal HBV screening strategy for China.

    • Authors: Shu Su; William CW Wong, Jason J Ong, Wai-Kay Seto, Lei Zhang
      Abstract: We thank Min Liu and Jue Liu for taking the time to read our study and respond to our published manuscript.1 They suggest that hepatitis B virus (HBV) screening for key groups and groups at high risk might be a better strategy for China to achieve the 2030 HBV elimination target than by universal screening. Although targeted screening has its advantages in reducing the initial monetary investment and can be implemented in resource-scarce settings, identifying the key groups and groups at high risk themselves could be a major barrier for its implementation.

      Abstract: We welcome Bernard Seytre's engagement with our Comment.1 However, his response leaves us more perplexed than enlightened. It is not clear whether Seytre is questioning the sources or disputing the facts. In any event, a careful reader of the US study we cited,2 for example, will find therein explicit treatment of racism, medical abuse, and public trust (page 2 of the study). This finding has direct bearing on vaccine hesitancy and the history of colonial medicine and medical abuse in Africa, as shown by several studies (see Lowes and colleagues for a sample).

    • Authors: Katrina T Feliciano; Robyn Gayle K Dychiao, Michelle Ann B Eala, Joseph Alexander Paguio, Renzo R Guinto
      Abstract: Maja Marcus and colleagues (March, 2022)1 show that, between 2013 and 2019, 41 low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) failed to meet the WHO targets for statin use in preventing cardiovascular disease. We write from the perspective of the Philippines—a southeast Asian LMIC, where cardiovascular disease has been the leading cause of death for the past 33 years.2 Challenges in health financing, health infrastructure, and health-service delivery are among the substantial barriers to increasing statin use in the country.

      Abstract: Despite the unprecedented scale up of malaria control tools, malaria still represented around 30–40% of paediatric hospital admissions in 2006–17. The age shift towards older children was not accompanied by an increase in severe malaria or deaths; however, control programmes should consider adapting their high-risk target groups to include older children. Malaria remains a leading cause of disease and health-care system use and the massive unfinished malaria control agenda warrants intensified efforts.

      Abstract: City planning policies influence urban lifestyles, health, and sustainability. We assessed policy frameworks for city planning for 25 cities across 19 lower-middle-income countries, upper-middle-income countries, and high-income countries to identify whether these policies supported the creation of healthy and sustainable cities. We systematically collected policy data for evidence-informed indicators related to integrated city planning, air pollution, destination accessibility, distribution of employment, demand management, design, density, distance to public transport, and transport infrastructure investment.

      Abstract: An essential characteristic of a healthy and sustainable city is a physically active population. Effective policies for healthy and sustainable cities require evidence-informed quantitative targets. We aimed to identify the minimum thresholds for urban design and transport features associated with two physical activity criteria: at least 80% probability of engaging in any walking for transport and WHO's target of at least 15% relative reduction in insufficient physical activity through walking. The International Physical Activity and the Environment Network Adult (known as IPEN) study (N=11 615; 14 cities across ten countries) provided data on local urban design and transport features linked to walking.

      Abstract: Benchmarking and monitoring of urban design and transport features is crucial to achieving local and international health and sustainability goals. However, most urban indicator frameworks use coarse spatial scales that either only allow between-city comparisons, or require expensive, technical, local spatial analyses for within-city comparisons. This study developed a reusable, open-source urban indicator computational framework using open data to enable consistent local and global comparative analyses.

      Abstract: This Series on urban design, transport, and health aimed to facilitate development of a global system of health-related policy and spatial indicators to assess achievements and deficiencies in urban and transport policies and features. This final paper in the Series summarises key findings, considers what to do next, and outlines urgent key actions. Our study of 25 cities in 19 countries found that, despite many well intentioned policies, few cities had measurable standards and policy targets to achieve healthy and sustainable cities.

Possible reasons are past underdiagnosis or a change in the population structure of GBS.2 Intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis (IAP) was recommended as the prevention strategy for early-onset invasive GBS (EOGBS),3 and was adopted by various high-income countries. As a result, a substantial decline in the incidence of neonatal disease was observed.

      Abstract: Our analysis provides a comprehensive assessment of the pregnancy-related GBS burden. The Bayesian approach enabled coherent propagation of uncertainty, which is considerable, notably regarding GBS-associated preterm births. Our findings on both the acute and long-term consequences of iGBS have public health implications for understanding the value of investment in maternal GBS immunisation and other preventive strategies.

  • [Comment] COVID-19 vaccine booster strategy: striving for best practice

    • Authors: Mine Durusu Tanriover; Murat Akova
      Abstract: As we enter the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, policy makers need pragmatic data about the performance of the different vaccination regimens for informed decisions and prioritisation, because placebo-controlled studies are no longer feasible for ethical reasons. Furthermore, there is a need for evidence of the protective effectiveness of the vaccines against symptomatic or severe COVID-19 in real-world settings, in which unselected individuals from every age and different risk groups are vaccinated.

      Abstract: Our results suggest that a homologous or heterologous booster dose for individuals with a complete primary vaccination schedule with CoronaVac provides a high level of protection against COVID-19, including severe disease and death. Heterologous boosters showed higher vaccine effectiveness than a homologous booster for all outcomes, providing additional support for a mix-and-match approach.

  • [Articles] Estimating the cost of achieving basic water, sanitation,
           hygiene, and waste management services in public health-care facilities in
           the 46 UN designated least-developed countries: a modelling study

    • Authors: Michael Chaitkin; Samantha McCormick, Jorge Alvarez-Sala Torreano, Irene Amongin, Silvia Gaya, Odd N Hanssen, Richard Johnston, Tom Slaymaker, Claire Chase, Guy Hutton, Maggie Montgomery
      Abstract: Investment will need to increase to reach full coverage of basic WASH and waste services in public health facilities. Financial needs are modest compared with current overall health and WASH spending, and better service coverage will yield substantial health benefits. To sustain services and prevent degradation and early replacement, countries will need to routinely budget for operations and maintenance of WASH and waste management assets.
