THE LANCET From public to planetary health: a manifesto

http://t.co/TUIj0MRVb7

A new vision for planetary health

Copyright: European Space Agency/Science Photo Library
This manifesto for transforming public health calls for a social movement to support collective public health action at all levels of society. Our aim is to respond to the threats we face: threats to human health and wellbeing, threats to the sustainability of our civilisation, and threats to the natural and human-made systems that support us.

Our vision is for a planet that nourishes and sustains the diversity of life with which we co-exist and on which we depend. Our goal is to create a movement for planetary health.
