Abstract: A new dynamic model for the malaria disease has been developed for areas where the whole populace is at risk and exposure to the malaria infection is continuous throughout the year. In this model, the two vulnerable groups that is, infectious people thoseunder 5years and pregnant women have been given separate compartments. The model has two equilibria, that is, disease-free and endemic equilibrium points. The basic reproduction number (
