[Correspondence] A planetary health approach to emerging infections in Australia

The increased mobility of people, domestic animals, and insect vectors, together with major strains on ecosystems around the world, has encouraged the World Economic Forum to rank the spread of infectious diseases second only to water crises as a serious global threat.1 Current global health frameworks are poorly equipped to deal with the threat of emerging infectious diseases because narrowly focused vertical programmes do not address the overlap between human and animal health, nor incorporate the necessary social, economic, and ecosystem expertise.
