Abstract

Malaria in pregnancy has been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. Its co-infection with typhoid fever is indeed a double tragedy. The present study was designed to evaluate the pregnancy outcomes in malaria and or malariatyphoid co-infected pregnant women attending antenatal clinics in Anambra State, South Eastern Nigeria.
