The impact of economic growth on climate change can be studied within the vacuum of countries capable of economic development. Unfortunately, it will be found that many of these countries are outside of the impact zone of infectious diseases like malaria.

Termed "vector-borne diseases", these diseases that travel by the bite of insects like mosquitoes, ticks, and flies are of little concern to North America and Europe. Even though there is documented evidence of climate change in terms of the distribution of cases of malaria striking in North America, it is not something that the population at large worries about.
