dc.description.abstractObjectives. To assess the knowledge, attitudes and practices on dengue fever, measures for prevention and control, and to identify factors related to unawareness in public elementary school students in the district of Chorrillos, Lima, Peru. Design. Cross sectional observational study. Setting. State elementary institution in Chorrillos district, Lima, Peru. Participants. Students of elementary school. Methods. In the year 2013, 142 students from fifth and sixth grade answered a survey questionnaire. We explored the perception among 12 school brigadiers using the projective technique. Main outcome measures. Knowledge, attitudes and practices about dengue. Results. In the study, 53.5% students were boys (76), mean age 11.2 ± 1.05 years old; 33.1% (47; CI95% 25.4-41.4) had basic knowledge about dengue; 53.5% (76) were able to identify dengue virus’ mechanism of vertical transmission; 29.6% of students (42; CI95% 22.2-37.8) were able to identify the larvae and 54.2% (77) identified the adult flying mosquito. Only 5.6% (8) and 2.1% (3) knew respectively of larvicides and using wet sand in flower vases as measures of control at home; 75.4% of the boys (75; CI95% 67.4-82.2) were willing to participate in active control of the mosquito vector, with statistical difference between boys and girls (p = 0.049238). Not having previous information led to not having basic knowledge about dengue (OR = 3.7; CI95% 1.7–8.3) (p = 0.0004676) Conclusion. The knowledge among students about clinical features, mode of transmission, vector and measures of prevention and control of the dengue virus were low because they had not received appropriate information.

html.description.abstractObjetivos. Evaluar los conocimientos, actitudes y prácticas sobre dengue, medidas de prevención y control, e identificar los factores asociados a su desconocimiento, en alumnos de una institución educativa estatal. Diseño. Estudio observacional transversal. Lugar. Institución educativa estatal en Chorrillos, Lima, Perú. Participantes. Alumnos de educación primaria. Métodos. En el año 2013, se encuestaron 142 alumnos del quinto y sexto grado de educación primaria y se exploró la percepción en 12 brigadieres en base a la técnica proyectiva. Principales medidas de resultados. Conocimientos, actitudes y prácticas sobre dengue. Resultados. El 53,5 % (76) era varón y el promedio de edad fue 11,2 con ± 1,05 años. El 33,1 % (47; IC95% 25,4 a 41,4) de los estudiantes tenía un conocimiento básico de dengue y 53,5% (76) identificaron la forma de transmisión vectorial del dengue. El 29,6 % (42; IC95% 22,2 a 37,8) de los escolares reconocieron las larvas y 54,2% (77) la forma adulta del vector. El 5,6% (8) y 2,1% (3) de los encuestados identificaron el larvicida y el cambio de arena húmeda de los floreros como medidas de prevención de la infestación domiciliaria. El 75,4% (75; IC95% 67,4 a 82,2) de los niños aceptarían participar en la búsqueda del vector, con diferencias significativas entre los niños y las niñas (p=0,049238). El no haber recibido información previa se asoció a no tener conocimiento básico de dengue (OR=3,7; IC95% 1,7 a 8,3; p= 0,0004676). Conclusiones. Los conocimientos de los estudiantes sobre los signos y síntomas y la forma de transmisión del dengue, las características del vector y las medidas de prevención del dengue fueron bajos y el no recibir información se asoció al desconocimiento del dengue.
