Currently, long lasting insecticide treated bed nets (LLITNs) is one of the effective methods to prevent malaria in among tribal population residing in endemic areas. But utilization of LLITNs among the community still remains a great challenge. Present community based study includes two tribal villages to identify the predictive factors for utilization of LLITNs in a tribal population in Chhattisgarh, India. It suggests that recent history of malaria, knowledge about symptom, transmission and prevention of malaria could be possible predictive factors for LLITNs utilization. This also implies that Improvement of Knowledge about the disease, mode of transmission, prevention strategies of malaria can help to improve the existing scenario of malaria among the tribal population.
