  • Global patterns affecting disease
    • Temperature
      • Warm and humid conditions are ideal for diseases.
      • Are endemic to the tropics. Vector behaviour is more active - more breeding and thriving.
      • Malaria and Yellow Fever
    • Precipitation
      • Precipitation can increase humidity.
      • Stagnant pools of water allow vectors to breed,
      • It is humid at the equator where there is low pressure.
    • Relief
      • This is the shape of the land.
      • Altitude affects temperature and precipitation (Ethiopia).
    • Water sources
      • Water-borne diseases such as cholera.
      • People in LIDCs rely on contaminated water sources.
