This study provides information on the infectivity rate of Plasmodium falciparum on subjects attending University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH), Ilorin, Kwara State, Nigeria. Information on the use of certain preventive measures to control malaria transmission and also the need to keep a clean environment for more healthy living is given. A total of 200 subjects attending UITH were recruited into the study. Their blood samples were collected and analyzed microscopically for the presence of the parasite. Questionnaires were collated to obtain information on the kind of control measures undertaken by the subjects to reduce the infectivity rate of the parasite. The study showed that most of the control measures adapted by some of the subjects were effective when compared to the subjects who did not use any control measures.
