Description:
There is increasing evidence that climate change has a significant role in causing malaria epidemics. As climatic conditions change, the locations of suitable breeding habitats for the mosquitoes that transmit malaria and other diseases will change. This graphic shows the locations of malaria-free areas, malaria transmission areas and the areas in which malaria has largely been eliminated in Africa, as of 2002.
