With the threat of a warmer, wetter world and a larger global population, scientists are researching how climate change may impact the spread of infectious diseases, such as cholera and dengue fever, and how outbreaks may be prevented.  

The Changing Planet series explores the impact that climate change is having on our planet, and is provided by the National Science Foundation & NBC Learn.
