Abstract: In India malaria is complex because of vast tracts of forest with tribal settlement. The present study reveals the prevalence of malaria in different PHCs of Adilabad district Telangana from 2009 to 2014. PHCs are Jainoor, Sirpur (U) and Lonvelly. The results were obtained through cross-sectional record based study. The plasmodium falciparum and plasmodium vivax infection was identified individually by ONE STEP Malaria Anti - P. f. /P. v. Test and infection was confirmed by examining blood smear microscopically. The malaria cases were recorded for all the Three PHCs, In the year 2009, out of total 159 cases 125 cases were P. F. and 34 were P. V, in the year 2010 out of total 147 cases 121 cases were P. F. and 26 were P. V, in the year 2011 out of total 231 cases 187 cases were P. F. cases and 44 were P. V, in the year 2012 out of total 118 cases 71 cases were P. F. cases and 47 were P. V, in the year 2013 out of total 234 cases 160 cases were P. F. and 74 were P. V, in the year 2014 out of total 261 cases 228 cases were P. F. cases and 33 were P. V. Some epidemiological parameters were calculated to support the data. The ABER was observed to be high in Jainoor PHC. Other parameters like API, SFR and SPR were calculated and found that Lonvelly PHC has shown highest values compared to the rest of PHCs. It was observed that API was high during the year 2009 to 2011, but decreased in 2012 and again increased in 2013 and 2014. Finally it is concluded that falciparum cases recorded were three times more than the vivax cases. Thus according to our study, P. falciparum malaria was more prevalent then P. vivax malaria in PHCs of Adilabad district.
