Abstract

The main goal of health education is to enable each individual and family within our community to exercise their right to develop and achieve their physical, mental and social potential. The method used was the ‘Media Content Analysis’, here the two leading newspaper ‘Anandabazar Patrika’ and ‘The Telegraph Calcutta’, was used to analyse the Dengue Fever news articles and how they cluster together to educate the Public Health massages to their audience through the press. A total of 10,763 articles were analysed over a survey period of two year seven month (January 2018 to July 2020), and they were searched according to the selected keywords. This research employed mixed methods of data collection, following a three-phase explanatory sequential design: 1) survey and Health literacy, 2) focus group interview, and 3) observational study. The articles were coded and framed according to their type. The data were then entered in ‘Microsoft Excel 2007’ and analysed. The results showed that a strong positive correlation was seen between the reported number of Dengue Death cases and Cleanliness (which include the articles comprising the picture of unhealthy and polluted environment around the death person’s neighbourhood and house). Purpose of this study is to educate the health professionals about the epidemic and to form necessary policies and protocol to combat the situation.
