This chapter explores some of the ways in which 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 (see Castree et al., 2004), 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 (see also Rock, Degeling and Blue, 2014).
