Yanda PZ, Wandiga SO, Kangalawe RYM, Opondo M. "Adaptation to climate change/variabilityinduced highland malaria and cholera in the Lake Victoria Region." COSTECH Integrated Repository. 2016. AbstractWebsite

Global climate change and its interactive components, such as water availability, related vulnerability of natural and socio-economic systems and health, changes in land use, as well as availability, quality, quantity of water and related policies, affects human wellbeing. The apparent correlation between disease outbreaks, such as malaria, cholera, rift valley fever, and meningitis—all of which are sensitive to climate variability (McCarthy et al., 2001)—and the strong El Niño years, e.g., 1982–1983 and the 1997–1998 events indicates a causal link between climate and health. Integrated climate-disease models show that rates of infections can be affected by climatic anomalies.
