ABSTRACT

Nigeria the 14th largest country in Africa has a total land area of 923,768 square kilometers. Nigeria lies in sub-Saharan Africa and has a population of approximately 177.1 million making it the 7th largest country in the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Nigeria has the most significant number of malaria cases. In Nigeria alone, 60 million people experience Malaria attacks at least twice a year, with no less than 80% of the population exposed to the disease (WHO, 2009). Malaria is one of the most important public health problems in Nigeria and the world. It is a leading cause of death and disease in many developing countries, especially among young children because they have not developed immunity to malaria yet and pregnant women due to decreased immunity (CDC, 2018). According to the Malaria Report 2018 of the World Health Organization, 219 million malaria cases and 435 000 malaria deaths were reported worldwide in 2017 by stockholders as opposed to the interest of the people who are in desperate need of the drugs. Resultantly, these dilemmas notions of guilt and fault often accompany global ethics and initiatives. Therefore, this study will examine whether there is a difference in malaria prevalence between males and females in Kano City, Nigeria.

Keywords: Malaria, Plasmodium infection, Widespread, Women, Men, Prevalence.
