Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

Effect of physical inactivity on major non-communicable diseases worldwide: an analysis of burden of disease and life expectancy

The Lancet, 380/9838 Published: 2012-07-21

Global trends in antiretroviral resistance in treatment-naive individuals with HIV after rollout of antiretroviral treatment in resource
