Abstract: Introduction: malaria associated with pregnancy (MAP) remains a public health concern, taking into account the vulnerability of the populations involved (women and children). It is in this context that this study was to establish the plasmodic incidence of peripheral blood, placenta and cord during MAP. Material and methods; It was a cross-sectional and analytical study carried out at the maternity ward of the Talangai Reference Hospital (R. du Congo).56 parturients were received at the hospital. The thick drop and appositions were made with peripheral blood, placenta and cord blood. Results: The average age was 25.29 with 19 years and 40 years as the extremes. Age, pregnancy and parity did not show any influence on the methods of prophylaxis. Peripheral blood, placenta and cord plasmodic incidence were 36.54 %, 23 % and 7.84 %, respectively. There was no statistically significant difference in the distribution of peripheral blood, placental and cord parasitaemia and no associativity was observed between these parameters. Conclusion; The peripheral, placental and cord plasmodic index of malaria associated with pregnancy in our study remains of concern, especially since the study population was peri-urban, that is to say accessible to health services.
