Abstract:

Malaria remains the single largest threat to child survival in SSA, warranting long-term investment for control. The authors describe a numerical approach to defining malaria transmission distribution based upon climate-associated biological constraints on parasite and vector development as the basis for predicting impact of climate change on transmission.
