This study evaluated the knowledge, attitude and practice of malaria among the Staff and Students of Delta State University, Abraka in South-South Nigeria. A descriptive cross-sectional survey was carried out among 400 respondents. Data was analyzed with SPSS version 20.

All (100%) respondents ever heard of malaria and 98.8% knew that Mosquito is the vector; majority (83.5% – 100%) identified sleeping in insecticide treated nets, spraying insecticides, trimming of bushes around the house and Elimination of stagnant water as malaria control measures; Age, occupation and education were correlated with knowledge of malaria.
