The present retrospective study was conducted to evaluate the epidemiological profile of malaria in Mauritania between 2009 and 2015. A total of 1,449,207 cases of malaria were recorded. The incidence rates of uncomplicated malaria and severe malaria were 55.2 per 1000 person-years and 3.3 per 1000 person-years, respectively. Malaria affected all age groups, but the most affected age group was 15 years and over. Malaria was reported from all regions. Hodh El Charghi and Hodh El Gharbi regions were the most affected regions. These results confirm that malaria remains a major public health problem in Mauritania.
