Summary This chapter explores some of the ways health geographers have debated, contested and adapted ideas and concepts drawn from contemporary discussions of posthumanism. I will start by briefly introducing the key features of posthuman, nonhuman and more-than-human geographies, before considering how health geographers have contributed to these discussions. My goals are to synthesize the ideas, concepts and controversies of key relevance for health geographers; to highlight the most engaging and innovative of contemporary researches; and to briefly map some possible future directions for health geography after the posthuman turn.
