Malaria endemic areas in eastern Indonesia, spread over 84 districts / cities with a population of 16 million people at risk. The level of malaria endemicity in Gorontalo is done based on AMI and API size. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of anemia and nutritional status of children with malaria. This was an observational analytic study with cross sectional study design. The sample is 105 children aged 7-12 years in SDN 5 East Sumalata. The independent variable is the incidence of anemia and nutritional status and the dependent variable is the incidence of malaria. The results showed anemia prevalence of 57,1% with mean Hb (10,6 gr / dL) and was in very mild anemia classification and for the most nutritional status with normal nutrition status was 87,6%. by using Chi-Square statistic test with 95% significance (? = 0,05) showed that there was correlation between occurrence of anemia with malaria incidence (?2 = 40,082 p value 0,000) and no relationship between nutritional status and malaria incidence (?2 = 1,495 p value 0.301), it is advisable to disseminate malaria-related information and anemia through increased knowledge of malaria, run iron supplementation programs and food fortification programs.
