Abstract

A community-based cross-sectional study was undertaken covering 300 peoples in some selected peri-urban areas of Bankura, West Bengal, India to understand the level of knowledge and perceived risk regarding mosquito-borne infectious diseases. The general perception of the community may be helpful in designing evidence-based effective control strategies in the study area. Present survey emphasizes the need of creating public awareness regarding the seriousness of mosquito borne diseases as effective preventive measures.
