Contemporary imaginaries of ‘planetary health’ in the Anthropocene claim to address pressing global-scale predicaments, yet are contested by knowledges from different times, places and scales. In West Africa and beyond, I ask – are anthropocenic reconfigurations obscuring creative, everyday relationships between people and non-human natures in dealing with infectious threats and maintaining healthy lives and ecologies? Who is gaining and losing? How can we open up the politics of planetary health to a greater appreciation of diverse socio-natures, plurality and uncertainty?
