GUIBERT REYES, Wilfredo; FERNANDEZ, Niurys; PRENDES LABRADA, Marianela de la C.  and  DALAS GUIBERT, Miroslaba. Strategy for antidengue health education and prosanitation. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 2005, vol.21, n.5-6. ISSN 0864-2125.

The present paper is aimed at exposing the design and application of an intervention strategy directed to develop in persons conducts of antidengue selfprecaution and prosanitation by using our modification of the theoretical model of change by stages. The 16 conducts having more impact for the intervention are showed and our theoretical view to face this task, as well as the steps to take precautions for the individual change, are dealt with in the framework of the stage methodology. The main ideas, strategies and tools for an effective and economic intervention are approached and useful and pertinent informations to facilitate the change process are given (Habaneros). Guidance is given on the personnel to be trained, the topics that should be taught and the conditions necessary to play their role with quality. It is established that a basic condition for the intervention is the availability of a minimum of material resources that guarantee the changes and their maintainance in real life.

Keywords : Prosanitation; strategy; antidengue health conducts; self-control.
