Climate Variability and Human Health Impacts in Brazil
The highlights are as
- Characterization of a natural decrease
in malaria incidence during ENSO years in northern Amazonia Brazil.
- Development of a conceptual model on
the social vulnerability of the population to the health impacts of
climate variability in tropical America.
- Assemblage in digital format of a large
time series of malaria data (up to 40 years), on a monthly basis,
that would otherwise be lost.
