Summary

Just for 2015, it is estimated that over a million of African people are infected by malaria because they live in areas were large dams are located. Researchers plotted the correlation between incidence of malaria and the location of the water dams. The result showed that existence of the large dams has a direct impact to the health conditions of the people living within the immediate vicinity.
