Initiative Allows Health Professionals To Use Climate Information To Address Malaria In Ethiopia

Climate & Development Knowledge Network: Climate information to help combat malaria in Ethiopia
Mairi Dupar, strategic knowledge manager at the Overseas Development Initiative (ODI), technical adviser for the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), and managing editor for CDKN’s website, with assistance from Madeleine Thomson of Columbia University, discusses the impact of climate change on the spread of malaria in Ethiopia and highlights the Enhancing National Climate Services (ENACTS) initiative, which “has made climate information easier for Ethiopian health professionals to access and use … [and] has helped them to pinpoint which districts will be most exposed to the climatic conditions that foster the spread of malaria — and to better target malaria control measures” (4/18).
