Projecting the Changes in Malaria Distribution in sub-Saharan Africa under Climate Change Scenarios: a Systematic Review

Investigator: Knox Kelly, MS

Location(s): Kenya; Uganda; Tanzania


This study aims to systematically review all current literature accessing the impacts of climate change on malaria outcomes in sub-Saharan Africa. Specifically, it will look at certain climatic factors like temperature and precipitation to assess their effects on the incidence and spread of malaria. It is my hope that this will inform decisions on malaria elimination in the future as the impacts of climate change become more common.
