Climate change may be a 'distraction' on malaria spread

The BBC have reported on a new study by a research group at Oxford University which says that climate change will have little effect on the spread of malaria in comparison with ongoing control measures.

Epidemiologoist Peter Gething and Simon Hay of the Malaria Atlas Project, who also supply the malaria maps used on our own site, said, "the impact of public-health measures such as improved medications, widespread insecticide use and bed nets have overwhelmed the influence of climate change."

The paper was published today in Nature.
