We examined six infectious diseases based on clinical and laboratory diagnosis (malaria, enteric fever, encephalitis, diarrheal disease, pneumonia and meningitis) to offer a broader scope on the trend of these conditions and their possible relation to climate change in Bangladesh. Our findings support a relationship between weather patterns and disease incidence, and provide essential baseline data for future large prospective studies. We believe that the findings will be of interest to public health experts and policy makers to stimulate effective measures to combat infectious diseases and related epidemics in climate change related vulnerable countries.
