Abstract

Minapolitan is a fisheries-based regional development strategy, but the pond wastewater in there has odors containing several compounds that can stimulate the olfactory nerve of mosquito, mainly Aedes spp. It becomes the cause of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) and caused 128 cases and four deaths in Tulungagung Regency. The aim of this research is to analyze the factors that influence people's behavior towards the incidence of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) in the Minapolitan Area of Tulungaggung Regency. An interview was conducted with a key person and distributed the questionnaire in 98 respondents. Then, data were analyzed with multiple linear regression to examined the variable that have affect the DHF suspect. DHF suspect is affected by the level of economy and socio-cultural conditions. It has a negative effect on DHF suspects, because if the level of economy and socio-cultural conditions is increasing, then DHF suspect will decrease. As for health behavior, if there is an increase, DHF suspect will increase. However, it is because the community still underestimates the steps in preventing dengue fever. Steps that can take are 3M (Closing, Draining, and Burying) so that there is no medium for mosquitoes, mainly Aedes aegypti, to breed.
