Malaria in pregnancy (MIP) is a serious health risk for the pregnant woman, the fetus and ultimately the newborn and infant. The P. falciparum parasite, which causes anemia and hypoglycemia, is also thought to be the only one responsible for placental malaria. In Rwanda, Malaria remains to be one of the causes of mortality and morbidity, according to the Rwanda 2010 Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) and the Rwanda Health Sector Strategic Plan 2009 - 2012.Children under five and pregnant women are the most affected In 2010, the number of confirmed malaria cases in Rwanda was 8,517, corresponding to a 76% decline Compared to35, 688 confirmed cases during 2000- 2005. The aim of this thesis is to contribute for determining the effect of malaria parasites and its complication in pregnancy women especially those who live in Macuba sector where HANIKA HEALTH CENTRE is located and its around, Study was a retrospective antenatal record of HHC by comparing outcomes during pregnancy like anemia and hypoglycemia between pregnant women with malaria parasites and pregnant women without malaria parasites by identifying the age and gestation period as risk factors Among 471 pregnant women who attended antenatal care at HANIKA health center, 26.53% women was diagnosed with malaria positive.
