It may be assessed by indicators as death rate, infant mortality rate and life expectancy. Ideally, piece of information should be individually useful and when combined should permit a more complete health profile of individuals and communities.
Aims & Objectives: The main aim of the study is to assess the effectiveness of video assisted teaching programme on knowledge regarding hazards of open air defecation among women in selected villages of Waghodia. Methods: Pre- experimental study using 100 samples
Result: Result shows that the mean post-test knowledge score (24.8) was higher than the mean pre-test score (13.69). The comparison of pre-test and post-test knowledge score showed that there was a significant t(99,0.05) =1.984 gain in knowledge scores of women after video assisted teaching programme. Calculated‘t’ value (7.27) was much higher than the tabulated‘t’ value (1.984) at 0.05 level of significance. So statistically proved that there was significant difference in knowledge scores of women regarding hazards of open air defecation in Waghodia & Piparia. Thus H1 is accepted. The Chi-square value shows that there is a significant association between knowledge of women with age, religion.
Conclusion: The study findings revealed that planned teaching programme was effective in improving knowledge of women regarding hazards of open air defecation.
