The study is made up of five objectives
Each objective is being tackled by different research components with some components cutting across several objectives. Scroll to the bottom of the page to find out more about each of the research components that make up the objectives. The objectives are as follows:
To determine factors (climatic and non-climatic) that contribute to population health vulnerability to VBDs in the selected study sites. This includes the anthropology, parasitology and virology components of the study.
To assess existing adaptation strategies and develop innovative solutions for enhancing resilience using participatory action research approaches. This includes the anthropology and parasitology components of the study.
To develop tools for detection of the likely occurrence of climate sensitive vector borne diseases. This includes the virology and spatial modelling components of the study.
To assess and compare the temporal and spatial characteristics of climatic, hydrological, ecosystems, and vector bionomics variability in Baringo County, Kenya. This includes the entomology, virology and spatial modelling components of the study.
To build the capacity of stakeholders to promote the utilisation of the developed strategies. This includes the anthropology, entomology, parasitology, virology and spatial modelling components of the study.
