ABSTRACT

Background Malaria is endemic in I 07 countries and territories in tropical and subtropical regions, with

sub-Saharan African hit hardest and is highly endemic in 95% of Uganda with

approximately 90% of the population (estimated at 32 million people) at risk. The remaining

5% of the country consists of unstable and epidemic-prone transmission areas in the

highlands of the south and west, along the eastern border with Kenya, and the northeastern

border with South Sudan. Malaria transmission is persistently high in some areas of northem

Uganda.

Methodology

A prospective cross sectional study was carried out involving_ both qualitative and quantitative

methods of data collection

Results

The study found out that the prevalence rate of malaria among children treated at Ishaka

Adventist Hospital was 23%, all children were given paracetamol most children were given

coartem (Artmether Lumefantrine), some few were given iv attesunate and quinine Health

Centre and the gametocytes carriage in children with malaria at lshaka Adventist Hospital

was 21%.

Conclusion

The prevalence rate of malaria among children treated at lshaka Adventist Hospital was low

coartem (Artmether Lumefantrine), iv artesunate and quinine were the drugs used to treat

malaria

The gametocytes carriage in children with malaria at Ishaka Adventist Hospital was low.

The altemative hypothesis that determination of the prevalence, treatment, and gametocyte

carnage is important in reducing the morbidity and mortality of children with malaria

remains
