. Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) reemerged as a significant public health problem, which reflects the difficulty in sustaining DHF control program. Community-based strategy to control Aedes aegypti breeding sites needs to be understood. The objective of this study is to understand contributed factors to DHF based on characteristics, the availability of basic sanitation, knowledge, perception, and attitude towards DHF prevention program. A survey conducted to 2035 households in 12 districts and 16 villages in Kota Bandung in April to June 2015 using stratified random sampling method. A questionnaire was administered to collect information on variables related to economic status, knowledge on DBD, risk perception and practices associated with Aedes aegypti breeding sites, also basic sanitation facilities.
