Climate Change Poses Challenge To Kenya’s Malaria Progress

The Guardian: Kenya’s net gains on malaria prevention threatened by climate change
“…[I]n Kenya and elsewhere in Africa … there is a worrying new challenge: climate change. Rising temperatures have opened the door to the spread of mosquitoes to areas in which they were barely a threat two decades ago. … Dr. Andrew Githeko, one of the leading malaria researchers in Kenya, says the spread of mosquitoes to the traditionally cooler highlands, where previously there were low levels of malaria, was a major problem…” (Mutiga, 6/18).
