Scienitists at The Kenya Medical Research Institute have developed a prediction tool that uses knowledge about mosquito breeding habits and weather patterns to predict outbreaks of malaria. Authorities will have warning of an outbreak three months in advance, allowing them to mobilize resources to the areas that will be affected in advance. The tool can be adapted to predict outbreaks of cholera, meningitis and Rift Valley fever.
