The methodology is considered one of the integral parts of research. Justifications, as well as methods, are proposed in the research methodology. The current study evaluates the occurrence of malaria incidence in SaudiArabia. This section is comprised of major elements, which include a type of research, data collections methods, sample size, data analysis techniques and research participants. The inclusion of such elements increased the authenticity and credibility of research under investigation.
The research design is important in research methodology. A descriptive correlation study will be used for studying the increasing malaria cases(Odongo-Aginya, Ssegwanyi, Kategere, & Vuzi, 2005)Citation & Reference added in the city of Makah on the 3 phases. In the first phase, I would(personal pronouns changed)collect the information before the season of Hajj on the different malaria incidents. In the second phase, we have to collect the information about the malaria incidents from the month of October to November. In addition, in the third phase, we have to collect the data about the five months after the Hajj to complete the measuring cycle of malaria. Research questions for the study were-
- How to measure the malaria incidence in Saudi Arabia during the hajj season
- What are the causes for such an epidemic the malaria cases or incidences in Saudi Arabia
Population and sample
In the first phase of the study, the researchers make (past tense changed with present tense) a plan with the public medical hospitals of Makah to create a collaboration, in which, after obtaining approval from the Institution Review Board, they were required to serve the pilgrims with medical necessities. The target population of this research includes pilgrims in the city of Makah was included in this research.
The purpose of this research was to identify the reasons in spread of malaria disease during Hajj and other ritualsamong the pilgrims. Therefore, all the pilgrims were the target population for this research. According to the estimations, only about 2 -3% of Hajjes were observed, treated or admitted in the medical centers of Makah for malaria related problemsin the last year. During the year of 2005,malaria incidence cases in Kingdom were125out of 519 cases that were confirmed. The sample size for this study will be about 12902 individuals per phase for getting the satisfactory results.(Snow, et al., 2013)
The sampling criteria in order to identify the target population or participantshavefollowing features:Reworded
1-Age from 15-49
2-Male or Female
3-Read or speak Arabic or English only
The research design is interpretative. The study design emphasis on the interpretation of the malaria casesin Saudi Arabia.(reworded)This approach helps to investigate malaria incidence that affected human body severely. In this way, health risk challenges have to be investigated based on individual responses of the participants. The research mainly focused on malaria patientsas well as identification methods to prevent this epidemic during hajj season in Kingdom.(rephrased)There are two approaches followed in thiscurrent research involves deductive and inductive approach.(Reworded)The current study employs the deductive approach to investigate the problem of malaria incidence due to the Holy rituals performed throughout the year in Makkah and Medina where the infection could spread by the patients for patient came from different countries. (Appropriation made)
A hypothesized relationship is developed between malaria’s defects and effects in the communities in Saudi Arabia.The current study is explorative, in which in-depth analysis is considered regarding malaria parasites. Qualitative research is followed where qualitative data is taken for the purpose of research. Personal observation, were taken intointerpretation of evaluating the malaria diseases information, is obtained after completion of Hajj in Saudi Arabia.(Rephrased)
This study helps to determine the pattern of malaria incidents in Makah after, during and before the Hajj. The 12902 participants (sample Size)were selected for the observation, treatment or admission to the public medical centers of Makah for identifying the malaria cases. In addition to this, patients of malaria were studied by doctors and surgeonsin the following medical centers: the King Faisal Hospital, King Abdul Aziz Hospital, Dr. Bakhsh Hospital and Mohammad Saleh BasharaHil Hospital. Hospitals, medical institutions, health care centers and government medical offices are also considered for the research participants (scidev.net, 2015). These are the major medical centers in Makah where research is conducted. Advanced questions are created to get responses of individuals in terms of identifying as well as adopting measures to prevent malaria in pilgr
