Clinton Health Access Initiative

Dr. James Colborn is a Public Health professional who has been working to incorporate the impacts of climate change into malaria prevention, control, and elimination efforts for more than 10 years. He has worked with the President’s Malaria Initiative and more recently the Clinton Health Access Initiative to better understand the underlying factors associated with malaria transmission in Mozambique. He has also been working on the creation and implementation of a novel malaria early warning system in Mozambique that combines near-term weather data with longer term large scale patterns of oceanic indices, as well as additional work with WHO to create standard operation procedures for the creation and implementation of early warning systems for climate-sensitive diseases and conduct trainings on vulnerability, resilience and adaptation to climate-sensitive diseases for South-East Asia.
