What is the role of climate change in exacerbating insect-borne diseases?

Climate change can exacerbate insect-borne diseases, such as malaria, dengue fever, and Lyme disease, by influencing the geographic range and abundance of disease vectors. Changes in temperature and precipitation patterns affect vector populations, transmission dynamics, and disease prevalence. Addressing climate change and implementing effective vector control measures are essential for mitigating the impacts of insect-borne diseases.
