Can we use local climate zones for predicting malaria prevalence across sub-Saharan African cities?

Abstract:

Malaria burden is increasing in sub-Saharan cities because of their rapid and uncontrolled urbanization. Yet very few studies have studied the interactions between the urban environments and malaria. Additionally, no standardized urban land-use/land-cover has been defined for urban malaria studies. Here, we demonstrate the potential of Local Climate Zones (LCZs) for modelling malaria (PfPR 2-10) prevalence and studying malaria prevalence in urban settings across nine sub-Saharan African citie...
