dc.description.abstract Patients who are receiving infected blood may be more susceptible to infection, thus transfusion-transmitted malaria presents a public health risk, requiring effective methods of donor screening. This is study was conducted during the peak transmission season of malaria (September to October/ 2014) in Wad Madani Central Blood Bank . 200 blood donors from different states were included. The samples were taken randomly from the donors, age ( 18 – 40 ) for the diagnoses of malaria parasite by microscope and RDTs . Thick and thin blood films were prepared and stained by Giemsa stain and screened by microscope for different species of malaria,also diagnosed by RDTs. The results revealed thatthe prevalence of malariawas 37% (74/200)by microscope and 38%(80/200) by RDTs . The degree of parasitaemia out of the 74 positive donor samples from total numbers of donors (200 donors), ranged from (40 – 24000 Parastite/µ).The stage of positive samples of Plasmodium falciparum having the active stage (the ring form) and only one sample having the infective stage of mosquitoes (the gametocytes), The prevalence of plasmodium species by RDTs represented as 91.25%(73/80)P.falciparum, 6.25%(5/80)P. vivax and 2.5%(2/80) mixed infection P. falciparum + P .vivax from 80 of positive samples. Specificity and sensitivity of RDTs showed 95% for both (high accuracy).The questionnaire prepared for this study showed that out 200 donors, 30 donors have previous history of malaria running from one month to one year .This study recommended it is high time to implement RDTs screening in blood bank, so the authorities of blood bank should implement that in their policy. en_US
