The area of research for CVF Ankamah is Climate Change Impact on Health. Her research will focus on producing evidence-based risk maps of malaria under five cases, estimating its prevalence rates and describing the distributional patterns over space and time incorporating climatic and non-climatic factors in Ghana. She hopes to contribute to detailed knowledge of spatial variation of malaria epidemiology and associated factors, especially for children (under five years of age) which is important for planning and evaluating malaria control measures..
