Due to the lack of vaccines and definitive treatment, preventive behaviours are the only way to overcome the disease.
This study has been motivated by the desire to change to the prevalence of these unaccepted health behaviours and so produce improvement in community health and eventually gain an understanding of the reasons why individuals perform a variety of behaviours. The researcher used the health belief model, which explores four constructs: perceived susceptibility five questions , perceived severity five questions , perceived benefits five questions , and perceived barriers five questions. The results of the analysis have revealed no consequential relationship between the Health Belief Model constructs and health behaviour.
Health education and health promotion can influence and guide the theory of health behaviour. Education programs and interventions are recommended because they are more likely to benefit employees and communities in their quest to change health behaviours. Gochman, D.

Health promotion is a behavioral social science that draws from the biological, environmental, psychological, physical and medical sciences to promote health and prevent disease, disability and premature death through education-driven voluntary behavior change activities. Health promotion is the development of individual, group, institutional, community and systemic strategies to improve health knowledge, attitudes, skills and behavior. The purpose of health promotion is to positively influence the health behavior of individuals and communities as well as the living and working conditions that influence their health. In schools health educators teach health as a subject and promote and implement Coordinated School Health Programs, including health services, student, staff and parent health education, and promote healthy school environments and school-community partnerships. At the school district level they develop education methods and materials; coordinate, promote, and evaluate programs; and write funding proposals.
