Analysis of the distribution of patients and diseases in the Kasungu District Hospital of Malawi, a land locked country in south-eastern Africa, was presented. The statistics of reported diseases in the hospital data with variables such as disease types, patient types and times of the year were examined. It is shown in this study that many of the diseases endemic to Africa do generally occur in this selected district as well. However, the analysis presents the possibility of reducing the incidences of many diseases by preventive measures and access to health facilities on time. This work is the extension of previous efforts to make accurate data available and is placed in the larger context of the diseases affecting the African continent in general.
Key words: Malaria, tuberculosis, Malawi, childhood education.
