Jocalyn Clark (2023-04-01). [Perspectives] Equity for women in science: the role of gatekeepers. thelancet.com A new book by Cassidy Sugimoto and Vincent Larivière, Equity for Women in Science: Dismantling Systemic Barriers to Advancement, is aptly timed given concerns about the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic damaged women's productivity, visibility, and recognition within the research—publishing ecosystem. Equality within systems of knowledge production is not only right, as this book shows, denying such equality is also harmful.

Leila Doshmangir, Roghayeh Khabiri, Vladimir Sergeevich Gordeev (2023-04-01). [Correspondence] Policies to address the impact of an ageing population in Iran. thelancet.com Iran is experiencing an acceleration in population ageing, such that in 2022, the proportion of people older than 60 years in Iran exceeded 10% of the total population. At the same time, the population growth rate in Iran is 0 ∑7, the lowest rate during the past 25 years.1 From 2000 onwards, Iran's fertility rate seems to have stabilised and, based on the demographic transition theory, it is not expected to see many changes in the coming years.2 At the top of the challenges related to population, ageing in Iran is the concern of lonely or unmarried older people who live in families with a small household dime…

Marina Romanello, Wenjia Cai, Anthony Costello, Stella Hartinger, Kris Murray, Georgiana Gordon Stratchan (2023-04-01). [Correspondence] No climate change justice in lieu of global authorship equity — Authors' reply. thelancet.com Climate change is the biggest threat to individual and public health of this century.1 But although no country is immune, people living in low-income settings (which historically contributed the least to the climate crisis) are disproportionately affected.2 Through its annual reports, the Lancet Countdown has exposed the low prioritisation of climate change and health in countries' political agendas and how the failure of high-income countries to deliver a robust response and international climate finance has so far undermined timely action.

Mark E Lindsay, James P Pirruccello, Patrick T Ellinor, Eric J Topol (2023-04-01). [Perspectives] Digitising the aorta to prevent dissection. thelancet.com During the 2022 FIFA World Cup, there was shock when the talented US sportswriter Grant Wahl died after an aortic dissection. The cause of aortic dissections in young healthy individuals is often a genetic predisposition towards failure of the extracellular matrix, the structure that gives strength to the aortic wall. Dissections of the ascending aorta are associated with high mortality rates and are a leading cause of sudden cardiac death. Despite the severity of the condition, the management of aortic aneurysm and dissection has not changed greatly in decades.




Mehr Muhammad Adeel Riaz, Marie-Claire Wangari, Joy K Mugambi (2023-04-01). [Correspondence] No climate change justice in lieu of global authorship equity. thelancet.com The 2022 Countdown on health and climate change1 highlighted the impacts of climate change due to human-made disasters on the overall physical and socioeconomic fabric of human life. This Countdown aims to highlight the global experiences but fails to translate the global point of view in terms of the report's authorship.

Olivier Uwishema (2023-04-01). [Correspondence] Rwanda's health-care transformation: a case study for war-torn countries. thelancet.com As the world commemorates the 29th anniversary of Rwanda's genocide against the Tutsi people in 1994, now is an excellent moment to reflect on the remarkable progress the country has made in its health-care system. Despite the devastating loss of life and infrastructure in the aftermath of the Tutsi genocide, Rwanda has been able to rebuild its health-care system and provide its citizens with access to quality care. This progress is a powerful lesson for countries in war conflicts and a testament to the resilience and determination of the Rwandan people.

Petteri Muukkonen (2023-04-01). [Correspondence] Geography education to help understand discrimination in climate change and health. thelancet.com Thilagawathi A Deivanayagam and colleagues1 have highlighted that the effects of climate change are not equally distributed around the world, creating discrimination related to climate change and health. The authors mentioned briefly that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recognises education as one way to address this issue.2 However, the problem is so large and multidimensional that it should be answered with cross-disciplinary solutions. The effects of climate change vary across countries and regions due to differences in geography, history, and economic development.

Reinhardt (2023-04-01). [Correspondence] The role of police enforcement in public health emergencies. thelancet.com The COVID-19 pandemic, which has lasted for nearly 3 years, has killed millions of people worldwide. Globally, during this public health emergency of international concern, the police have played an important role in maintaining social stability and preventing the crisis from further escalating during lockdowns.1 They also partnered with local centres for disease control and prevention (CDC) to track citizens' information to prevent the virus from spreading and conducted crisis communication to keep people away from misinformation.




Richard Horton (2023-04-01). [Comment] Offline: Here is how we avoid collapse. thelancet.com WHO is celebrating health for all on World Health Day (April 7). The agency's messages are important and familiar—that all people deserve good health in a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world; that health is an essential human right; and that universal health coverage is the means to that end. No one could argue with WHO's intentions. But there is an important missing truth. The planet and the life it nurtures are under threat from our own greed, exploitation, and mendacity. Unless the dangers humans have created are addressed, health for all will be nothing more than whimsical fantasy.

Sarah L Chellappa (2023-04-01). [Correspondence] Intersectional inequities in academia. thelancet.com Gender equality in academia still faces enduring challenges globally, with under-representation of women in leadership and decision-making positions. However, most universities and research institutions actively implement gender equality plans and undertake activities aimed at increasing it. Despite this remarkable progress, intersectionality lags behind. This term, first coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, corresponds to the "lens through which you can see where power comes and collides, where it interlocks and intersects".
