There are numerous mosquito vectors of pathogens on every continent except for Antarctica. All of these vectors and pathogens exhibit temperature dependent life cycles. Climate change has been implicated as the direct cause of global temperature rise, therefore, it is a driver of the global threat from arthropod borne diseases. Areas of southeastern Brazil, eastern Africa, and the Indochinese peninsula were all examined to determine risk assessment of these areas.
