Harnessing climate and technology to combat Malaria

Malaria infects over 240 million people a year and kills over 600 thousand, mostly women and children. Climate change is complicating efforts to eliminate malaria in countries around the world. Rising temperatures, changing rainfall patterns, and extreme weather events all disrupt health systems, and change the range and seasonality of malaria infection. How can technology and data, such as artificial intelligence, smarter systems of prediction, and precision planning, help overcome the effects of climate change and accelerate progress toward malaria eradication?
