Abstract

Mother’s Mosquito Eradication (ME) behavior plays important role on ME in Indonesia. Dengue Chit-Chat (DCC) is a text-messaging based intervention that can be used to improve ME. The aim of this study was to analyse the effect of DCC on the mother’s ME behavior in Bali. This study was a quasi-experimental with pre-test and post-test with control group design and cluster sampling technique. Sixty-seven participants were divided into experimental and control groups. The experimental group was given a three weeks message program that was delivered four times a week. Statistical analyses showed no significant differences in knowledge (p=0.064) and container index score (p=0.051), but showed significant differences in attitude (p<0.001) and practice (p<0.001) before and after the intervention. Based on these results, we conclude that DCC can be used to increase attitude and practice of ME. However, study with a longer intervention duration may be needed to explore the behavioral effect of text-messaging intervention on ME.
