Evaluation of the effects of climatic factors on the occurrence of diarrheal diseases and malaria
A pilot retrospective study in Jhapa District, Nepal
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.
