Abstract

The perceived risk regarding any vector borne disease depends upon the level of knowledge of the community people living there and based on the general perception of them, effective control strategies can be framed in the applied area. In the present study, a community-based cross-sectional study covering 400 peoples between an urban area (Bankura Sadar) and a rural area (Village Beliatore, Bankura) was undertaken to evaluate the level of knowledge of the community people regarding mosquito-borne diseases and locally used preventive measures. From the result of the present survey differences in the community perception between rural and urban people of Bankura were established.
