Malaria is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In Ethiopia malaria transmissionrnis generally unstable caused by P. falciparium and P. vivax. Early diagnosis and treatment is thernbest way to manage malaria transmission. Even though different diagnostic methods arernavailable, still microscopy is a gold standard but in place where microscopy is not accessible andrnaffordable, RDT is the only choose for easy diagnostic application which helps in accurate use ofrnantimalarial drugs. The overall trend of malaria in Ethiopia is not only high but rising. rnrn A cross sectional study was conducted to evaluate the performance of SD FK80 kit for malariarn(P. falciparum/P. vavix) diagnosis and to predict the trends of malaria in last seven years amongrnfebrile patients from November to December, 2011 at Adama Malaria Center, SoutheasternrnOromia. 384 blood samples were collected and analyzed with microscopy and RDT (SD BiolinernP. falciparum /P. vivax) for the detection and identification of Plasmodium parasites. Thernsensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive values of the SD Biolinernwere 90.7%, 96%, 89.8%, and 96.4%, respectively taking blood film as a gold standard. SDrnBioline FK80 P. falciparum/P. vivax was performed satisfactorily for the diagnosis of P.rnfalciparum and P. vivax infections. 12.9% positive malaria cases were reported in the last sevenrnyears from 2005-2011. The trend of the case was increasing from 2008 to 2011.
