Abstract

Vector-borne diseases constitute a formidable group among the communicable diseases. In India most of the vector-borne diseases remain endemic and are major public health concerns. Mosquitoes transmit some of world’s worst life threatening and debilitating parasitic and viral diseases. Some of these were effectively controlled since few decades, but such hard won gains are now threatened. The present study has been done in Cherthala Municipal area of Alappuzha district, Kerala state. Alappuzha district, until recently, known as the hot spot of Brugian filariasis. Mosquito-borne diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya, Japanese Encephalitis, West Nile, etc. have also been reported. In spite of different methods used to control these mosquito-borne diseases, satisfactory results often could not be achieved. Therefore, a study has been planned to critically look at the present strategies of vector control. An attempt has also been made to link the socio-demographic factors, environmental conditions, the attitude and practice of the local residents in the control of vectors and diseases.
