Description/Abstract

In this paper, we reflect on the positioning of health geography within the wider
academic landscapes of geography and health-related research. Drawing on examples from a
number of countries, we consider the extent to which a ‘new geography of health’ has emerged
in recent years. We structure our discussion around the themes of place, theoretical engagement
and critical relevancy. Changes within the subdiscipline are placed in the context of a central
question: what is new about the new geography of health?
