Overview

The objective of the study was to assess the relationship between climate variability on diarrhoeal diseases and malaria, specifically:

  • To assess the relationship between climatic factors (average temperature, rainfall and relative humidity) and diarrhoea.
  • To assess the relationship between elements of climate change (average temperature, rainfall and relative humidity) and malaria.
  • To identify and test a range of non-climatic factors that can potentially influence the above.
