BACKGROUND Existing theoretical models of the potential effects of climate change on vector-borne diseases do not account for social factors such as population increase, or interactions between climate variables. Our aim was to investigate the potential effects of global climate change on human health, and in particular, on the transmission of vector-borne diseases. METHODS We modelled the reported global distribution of dengue fever on the basis of vapour pressure, which is a measure of… CONTINUE READING
