1,277 patients were diagnosed and treated (July – September, 2017) for malaria, typhoid or co-infection at the University Health Services; 34.06% of the patients were diagnosed and treated in July; 32.58% in August; and 33.36% in September, 2017. The study reveals that the prevalence or incidence of malaria, typhoid and co-infection is higher in males (53.80%) than females (46.20%). 
7.75% of the study population had blood cultures confirming only typhoid infection; 31.95% had blood culture confirming malaria (Plasmodium spp.) and 60.30% showed blood culture confirmation of co-infection (malaria and typhoid). The result reveals the need to create awareness on the mode of transmission for malaria and typhoid 
fever, provision of adequate shelter (housing), access to potable water for domestic use, provision of insecticide treated nets and improved environmental sanitation, decreasing susceptibility.
