[Comment] Research in planetary health: a call for abstracts

Since the publication of the Rockefeller–Lancet Commission Report on Planetary Health,1 interest in planetary health has grown. Planetary health has been defined as the health of human civilisation and the state of the natural systems on which it depends.1 Planetary health research focuses on quantifying the human health effects of accelerating environmental change. To catalyse innovative ideas among the disparate yet integrally related fields, The Lancet will publish a booklet of outstanding abstracts in planetary health research, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Planetary Health Alliance on April 10–11, 2017, in Washington, DC, USA.
