Title: Prevalence of malaria infection among the displaced people in Soba (Khartoum State) and Magharba, Gezira State.
Author: Ahmed, Abd el Aziz; Osman, Omran F.; Malik, Elfatih
Abstract: Cross-sectional epidemiological surveys on malaria were carried out in two residential sites, Soba-Aradhi, Khartoum State, and Magharba, Gezira State. The surveys were conducted during the rainy, pre- and post-rainy seasons, 2004 - 2005. The investigated samples were 410 individuals from Saba and 740 villagers from Magharba. The overall objective of the study is to estimate the prevalence of malaria and the species of Plasmodia. Another policy-oriented objective is the socioeconomic analysis of malaria burden, with special emphasis on the villagers' KAP. The achievement of the objectives was attained by exploiting the group discussions, questionnaires and interviews of the randomly selected samples. The pilot surveys provided the baseline data and enriched the available knowledge about the surveyed communities. Family lists were updated for sample size determination, using the relevant computer packages.
