To evaluate the effect of a health education program on the prevention and control of dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) in the municipality of Mae Sot, Tak Province, a survey of adult residents, mainly housewires, was conducted in late April 1990 to assess their knowledge of DHF and practice of preventive methods.
A total of 417 respondents from 417 households selected by a systematic-cluster sampling method were interviewed.
More than 90% of them knew that the disease is transmitted by Aedes mosquitos and indicated water jars and water retention in the houses as the common breeding places.
