Abstract


Interventions have been done to reduce DHF incidence, such as fogging and suggestion to do 3M Plus, but ABJ (larva’s number) of Semarang is still under the target. The best intervention is by doing 3M Plus. The aims of this research are to know the relation between social characteristics, knowledge, and attitude with the habitual elimination 3M Plus of mosquito sites, the relation between the habitual elimination 3M Plus of mosquito sites with larva density, the larva density and also the prediction model of larva density from the habitual elimination 3M Plus of mosquito sites. The research has been done at Kelurahan Srondol Wetan, with observational, quantitative, and explanatory research by using cross-sectional survey method. The population were the houses with the respondent-the person who did the habitual elimination 3M Plus of mosquito sites. Sample number were 188 with stratified random sampling. The statistic test was the Kendalls Tau and multiple regresion. The result showed that there are relation between social characteristics such as education, family number, job, and salary, with the habitual elimination  3M Plus of mosquito sites but there is no relation with age, knowledge and attitude. There are also relations between the habitual elimination 3M Plus of mosquito sites at bath tub, water tub and also bucket with the larva density. Based on those results, Health Department of Semarang especially Community Health Center in Srondol Wetan expected to do health education about 3M Plus at bath tub, bucket and water tub. Suggestion also addressed to the next researcher to use purposive sampling and water storage classification for the same research.
