ABSTRACT

The study was conducted in Gombe local government from September-October 2014.the research was aimed at determining the effectiveness of sulphadoxine pyrimethamine in relation to malaria prevalence among pregnant women. 156 pregnant women attending antenatal clinic at some selected maternities were for used for the research. Blood samples were collected using vein puncture technique. Thick and thin films of the collected samples were prepared and stain using field stain and observe under microscope for malaria parasites. An overall prevalence of 41.67% was recorded, where study subjects in third trimester and multigravidae had the highest prevalence of 42.2% and 37.61% respectively. Prevalence in relation to SP utilization revealed that, study subjects who have taken SP recorded 55.32% as compared to35.7% from those who have not taken the drugs.
