Abstract

Malaria epidemics due to Plasmodium species are reported frequently in the Andhra Pradesh, Visakhapatnam highlands with high case fatality rates. There have been formal attempts to predict epidemics by the use of climatic variables that are predictors of transmission potential. However, little consensus has emerged about the relative importance and predictive value of different factors. Understanding the reasons for variation is crucial to determining specific and important indicators for epidemic prediction. The impact of temperature on the duration of a mosquito’s life cycle and the sporogonic phase of the parasite could explain the inconsistent findings. To improve reliability and general liability within similar climatic conditions, we grouped the districts into two climatic zones, hot and cold. In cold districts, rainfall was associated with a delayed increase in malaria cases, while the association in the hot districts occurred at relatively shorter lags. The interaction between climatic factors and their biological influence on mosquito and parasite life cycle is a key factor in the association between weather and malaria. These factors should be considered in the development of malaria early warning system.
