Human immune deficiency virus and malaria coinfection are among the greatest health problems globally and the understanding of how the two infections network could be imperative for the control of both diseases. Hence, this research formulated a mathematical model to study the coinfection of human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and malaria in the presence of treatment as control measures. The basic reproduction number was obtained using the next generation matrix method. The simulations were carried out using MAPLE 18 software. The result shows that the malaria treatment does not have any effect on the total coinfected populations. Thus, every sick person should be tested to ascertain the source of their health challenges.
