The study was conducted on a sample of 250 tribal people of Manipur state, comprised of 125 from the urban valley population and 125 persons from rural tribals settled on hilly area at a higher altitude. The finding shows that knowledge regarding transmission of malaria, self protection and treatment seeking behaviour is still poor among the tribal communities of Manipur. However the urban tribals had better knowledge regarding diagnosis of malaria and prevention of mosquito breeding than their rural counterparts.
