Malaria is an infectious disease caused by
Plasmodium sp that transmitted from the bite of female
Anopheles mosquito. Plasmodium sp belongs to the
protozoa group. Malaria can cause several problems
such as anemia, acute kidney failure, pulmonary
edema, jaundice and cerebral malaria. Long Lasting
Insecticidal Nets (LLINs) can reduce malaria
transmission and one of the main vector control
strategies recommended by the World Health
Organization for the control and elimination of
malaria. Improper use and care of LLINs will make
LLINs ineffective and make the risk of getting malaria
higher so that the use and care of LLINs must be
carried out properly. This study aims to determine
whether there are differences in using and caring long
lasting insecticidal nets in malaria and non malaria
patients at Pesawaran, Lampung, Indonesia. This study
is an analytic observational study with cross-sectional
survey approachment. This study had 82 subjects
consisting of 41 malaria patients and 41 non malaria
patients. The instrument of this study is questionnaire.
The results obtained from the questionnaire will be
analyzed using Chi Square Test.
