[Comment] Offline: Planetary health—gains and challenges

Slowly, planetary health is evolving into a new discipline to complement public and global health. The first professor of planetary health was recently appointed: Anthony Capon, at the School of Public Health in Sydney. A Planetary Health Alliance has been established between universities and non-governmental organisations, led by Sam Myers at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts. In April, 2017, the first Planetary Health conference will be held. Already, scientific meetings are including planetary health in their programmes.
