<jats:p>Malaria in Asia is thought to be grossly under-reported and this is evident from previously published statistics from Bangladesh. Malaria screening data from four Upazillas was analysed alongside census data to assess the trends in malaria incidence over time and distribution of malaria by age and gender. Malaria incidence in this area has decreased by around two thirds since 2003, although control measures were not significantly increased until 2005.  Malaria occurred in people of all ages with the highest incidence being in young adults. This is consistent with higher occupational exposure in this group. The probability of being screened for malaria decreased with age suggesting significant numbers of adults with malaria may be being missed.Keywords: Bangladesh; MalariaOnline: 29-1-2009DOI: 10.3329/bmrcb.v34i3.1757Bangladesh Med Res Counc Bull 2008; 34: 87-89</jats:p>
