All about climate change and vectorborne diseases

Numerous climate change vulnerability assessments anticipate that rising global temperatures will increase the incidence of communicable diseases including vector-borne diseases (VBDs).

WHO has taken action to reduce climate change health risks for vulnerable populations and urges Member States to combat the effects of climate change.


WHO received generous funding from the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to address the risks of climate change on VBDs.
