Nature and Society, Journal of the Frank Fenner Foundation

We place these articles at no charge on our website to serve all the people who cannot afford the Frank Fenner Foundation membership, or who cannot get access to it through their local library. Many of our most devoted readers are outside Australia. If you read our articles online and you can afford to become a member of the Frank Fenner Foundation, we invite you to do so. The online collection is not complete, but hard copies of some of those missing are available in the office. Please see the list below.

From public to planetary health: a manifesto
This manifesto for transforming public health calls for a social movement to support collective public health action at all levels of society—personal, community, national, regional, global, and planetary. Our aim is to respond to the threats we face: threats to human health and wellbeing, threats to the sustainability of our civilisation, and threats to the natural and human-made systems that support us.
