AMMA Health

African Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analyses (AMMA) is an international project to improve our knowledge and understanding of the West African monsoon (WAM) and its variability using a multi-scale approach: timescales, space scales …

AMMA’s main goals is to provide the African decision makers with improved assessments of similar rainfall changes which are likely to occur during the 21st century due to natural fluctuations and as a result of anticipated global climate change. An essential step in that direction is to improve our ability to forecast the weather and climate in the West African region.

AMMA Health project is a axis of the AMMA programs and the aims of this axis is to study the West African Monsoon (WAM) public health impacts, focusing epidemics of meningitis and malaria.

These studies are complementary to those developed by projects AMMA RFV Senegal project for the Rift valley fever or by Palusat project for the malaria in urban area.
