Many diseases and genetic disorders are associated with ABO and Rh systems of blood antigens. This study was conducted to determine the frequency of ABO and Rhesus (Rh) blood groups in District Rahim Yar Khan, Pakistan so that the results could be used for further application. A total of 9891 subjects including patients and healthy individual were sampled only belonging to District Rahim Yar Khan during this study. The ABO and Rh blood grouping were carried out by tile method using commercially available anti sera and subsequently the frequency of each blood type was computed. Out of 9891subjects 7451 were male, while 2440 were female. In both genders the prevalence frequency of ABO, association between ABO and Rhesus blood grouping systems was computed and analyzed. The brought out the conclusion that blood group B is at the highest frequency level among both the genders with an overall higher to lower order B (37.41%), O (33.95%), A (20.97%), and AB (7.65%). The blood group B was also at the highest frequency in Rh+ve as well as Rh-ve in male subjects. However, in female subjects the blood group O (33%) was at the highest frequency in Rh+ve and blood group A was at peak in Rh-ve .
