CURRENT AND FUTURE PROJECTIONS OF RISE IN VECTOR BORNE DISEASES DUE TO CLIMATE CHANGE IN INDIA
Keywords:Climate change, infectious diseases, temperature changes and vector- borne disease.
Climate change is one of the greatest threats to human health in the 21st century. Climate directly impacts health through climatic extremes, air quality, sea-level rise, food production systems and water resources. Climate also affects infectious diseases, which have played a significant role in human history, impacting the rise and fall of civilizations. The world is witnessing Climate change. Vector-borne diseases account for over 17% of all infectious diseases. There is increasing evidence about the impact of climate change on Vector Borne Diseases. In this paper, I have collected secondary data from published articles, journals, reports, and books on this major issue to discuss the effects of climate change on VBDs in India through this article. This paper will briefly review the changing epidemiology of the most important vector-borne diseases in India.
