The study was conducted at Eldamazin town, the capital of the Blue Nile State which is located 525 Km South of Khartoum the capital of Sudan. The State extends from Sinnar State in the North, bordering Ethiopia in the East and the Upper Nile State into the West and South. It is an agricultural and postural state. The population of this state is 861000 persons (census, 2009) most of them are farmers and animal breeders. This study was aim to determine the prevalence and species of malaria infection among blood donors who attending to the teaching hospital. One hundred males´ subjects were investigated during period from July up to October 2010. Their age range between (19 - 40) years. Two malaria tests were used thick and thin blood films and Immuochromatoghic test (ICT). The percentage of infected were (12%) subject by p. falciparum. The high prevalence of malaria p.falciparum among age group was found to be in (<25) years, no significant difference in the prevalence between married (5%) group and single (7%) Table (1), and no other risk factors previous blood transfusion, was found to be significant. There was no significant difference observed between two techniques used for detection malaria BFFM and ICI. The BFF has highest combined sensitivity and specifies. We concluded that the highest prevalence of malaria among age group (≤ 25) years and (26-0) years.
