Malaria is still becoming healthy problem in tropical country. Malaria cases in the province of Bangka Belitung still above 1/1.000. The highes influences is on west, south and east Bangka. The highest rate of malaria found in the West Bangka, about 86.87 per 1000 population. However, the availability of expert microscopic examination is limited. Therefore it is important to find alternative examination in this province because of the highest rate of malaria infection.The purpose of research is to investigate the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value by using the method of examination of Plasmodium falciparum Rapid Diagnostic Test (RDT) and microscopic at General Hospital West Bangka distric. The testing of these two sensitivity test has been done in the Hospital of the West Bangka Sejiran Setason from April 1st, 2013 to April, 20th 2013. In 134 samples by using purposive sampling based on consideration that fulfil the inclusion criteria of the researcher. The sample was taken by Passive Case Detection (PCD). The results from 134 respondents were male respondents was about 68 (50.75%) and, more in adulthood at 85 (63.43%), with un educated respondent is aout 47 (35.07%), and the level of employment of farmers about 71 respondents (52.99%). By using microscopic the result was 8 positive samples and as many as 126 samples were negative. By using RDT showed zero positive in the sample and negative results was 134 samples, therefore the sensitivity in this research was 0.0002%, specificity 100%, positive predictive value of 0.5%, and negative predictive value 94.02 %. The conclusions obtained in this research was that there still the limitation skilled laboran, RDT was still becoming an alternative, but it was need to have further research with bigger number of sample by using other type RDT. Therefore it can be decided which RDT was perfectly implemented on such area Keywords: Plasmodium falciparum, PfHRP II, RDT.
