A new climate study shows that some countries in sub-Saharan Africa may be underestimating the impact of their malaria control activities, while others may be underestimating their success.
The highlands of Ethiopia are home to the majority of the country’s population, the cooler climate serving as a natural buffer against malaria transmission. New data now show that increasing temperatures over the past 35 years are eroding this buffer, allowing conditions more favorable for malaria to begin climbing into highland areas.
