;/ descript ive cross -, section analysis 0/ five hundred patients who were
symptomatically diagnosed of malaria in three locations: Saki (peri-urban), Ibadan
(urban) and Lagos (highly urbanized) were recruited /01' this study using a well
structured questionnaire between September 2005 and June 2006. The prevalence
0/ both malaria and HIV infections were higher in Peri-Urban town than the other
two locations. We observed that 80% were HIV positive in Saki. 20% in Ibadan
and 37. J % in Lagos. Our data indicated that 74% were malaria pos itive ill Saki,
87% in Lagos and 24% in Ibadan. The percentage of co-infection in Saki, Logos
ffond Ibadan were 69%, 16% andI4.3% respectively. The high prevalence 0/ coinfection
in the two cross ..border locations (Saki and Lagos) is suggestive of a !'igh
correlation between clinical symptomatic malaria and HIV infection with respect
to cross border transmission of the two infections .. This paper suggests th at
government should make provision to establish sentinels for screening imin igrants.
