PENGETAHUAN, SIKAP DAN PERILAKU PENDUDUK DALAM KAITANNYA DENGAN KESEHATAN LINGKUNGAN DAN HIGIENE PERORANGAN DI KABUPATEN SUBANG, JAWA BARAT

Abstract


Ministry of Health Republic of Indonesia put a new policy based on the health paradigm. The priority is to prevent the disease, and not just the curative action. A research has been done to explore the community knowledge and behaviour in environmental health and personal hygiene.

The research is carried out in Subang, West Java in the year 2000. Data collection was done by interview, group discussion and observation. The main respondents in the research are 30 mothers who had babies or children under five years old. Other respondents are 20 husbands and 10 community leaders.

The result shows that community knowledge and attitude to environmental health and personal hygiene is not linear with the health practice to prevent diseases.

To grow the optimal health behaviour, it is essential to find an alternative strategy by pressing the health value orientation according to the characteristic and the condition of the local community.
