The current study was valued to find the incidence of Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, VDRL (venereal Disease Research Laboratory) and HIV in the healthy blood donors of Mardan and its neighboring districts of KPK in the period from December 2017 to 2018. A total of 4552 blood donor’s samples were screened through ELISA kit (ARCHITECT i1000SR automated immunoassay analyzer chemiluminescent microparticle immunoassay). In total 4552 blood donor’s HIV, occurrence was 0.04%, (2/4552), HBV occurrence was a little higher than 1.31%, (60/4552), VDRL occurrence was recorded in the range of 0.63%, (29/4552), while HCV was limited to the value of 1.2%, (54/4552). The current study also exposed the spreading design of HIV, HBV, HCV and VDRL in the blood groups of responsive samples. Blood group O+ was holding the peak incidence value i.e. HCV 29.62% (16/54), HBV 33.33% (20/60), HIV 50% (1/2), VDRL 34.48% (10/29). Shadowed by A+ 16.66 (9/54), HBV 20% (12/60), HIV 0% (0/2), VDRL 20.68% (6/29). And B+ was holding values in HCV 11.11% (6/54), HBV 15% (9/54), HIV was not noted in this regard, while VDRL is 30.76% (8/29). These statistics outcomes recommend uncertain degree of occurrence, still a much wide seroprevalence analysis of the over-all population are required to find the correct occurrence.
