Title variants
Languages of publication
Prolong changes in climatic parameters may affect not only the geographical distribution of various vector borne diseases, but also is projected to have adverse effects on human health in view of infectious diseases, particularly malaria. Malaria is perceived as the world’s most devastating infectious disease, which is responsible for very high morbidity and mortality. A number of socioeconomic, environmental and behavioral factors affect the disease prevalence. Despite these factors, the impact of climate on probability of malaria transmission remains contentious.
