dc.description.abstractA questionnaire about malaria knowledge, beliefs and practices was given to a r and om sample of 2168 married women from rural and urban areas of Sistan va Baluchestan, Islamic Republic of Iran. The mean knowledge score of subjects was low at 5.5 [‎maximum 15.0]‎. Few respondents [‎37.6%]‎ knew that malaria was an important disease in the area and only 58.4% knew that malaria was transmitted by mosquitoes. Most subjects [‎69.4%]‎ never used a mosquito net. Only 49.9% of rural and 73.8% of urban residents would seek care for fever and chills from the local health centre. Community health workers [‎behvarz]‎ were the main source of information [‎29.5%]‎ for rural women; the role of physicians in education was minimal. Subsequent health education must be tailored to the educational needs of the target population in this areaEN
