Ceccato, P., S. Trzaska, C. Pérez García-Pando, O. Kalashnikova, J. del Corral, R. Cousin, M.B. Blumenthal, M. Bell, S.J. Connor, and M.C. Thomson, 2014: Improving decision-making activities for meningitis and malaria. Geocarto Int., 29, no. 1, 19-38, doi:10.1080/10106049.2013.827749.

Public health professionals are increasingly concerned about the potential impact that climate variability and change can have on infectious disease. The International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) is developing new products to increase the public health community's capacity to understand, use and demand the appropriate climate data and climate information to mitigate the public health impacts of climate on infectious disease, in particular meningitis and malaria. In this paper, we present the new and improved products that have been developed for: (i) estimating dust aerosol for forecasting risks of meningitis and (ii) for monitoring temperature and rainfall and integrating them into a vectorial capacity model for forecasting risks of malaria epidemics. We also present how the products have been integrated into a knowledge system (IRI Data Library Map Room, SERVIR) to support the use of climate and environmental information in climate-sensitive health decision-making.
