Malaria has been one of the most prominent and ancient disease which has been profiled and studied malaria distribution seasons from September to December following the major rainy seasons from June to August with minor transmission seasons from February to march with some changes from place to place. The primary objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of malaria among patients visiting Nekemte hospital. Across sectional study was conducted to determine the prevalence of malaria among patients visiting Nekemte hospital. For the present study 120 patients were included in this study which was selected by convenient sampling techniques. The data was sorted by hand and using table and the calculation was done by using scientific hand calculator. Results were presented using tables. Two species of malaria, P. falciparum and P. vivax were identified with relatively higher prevalence of P. vivax (59.2%). Educational status, presence of stagnant water and bed net usage had an association with prevalence of malaria. Age and religion had no any association with prevalence of malaria between the age group of 17 to 27 and illiterate patients had relatively higher prevalence of malaria. Malaria infection can be reduced with the help of early treatment and by using bed nets.
