Background and Objective: Vaginal infections are the most common infections that women are getting for primary reasons such as poor knowledge and practice. Change of knowledge and practice requires consideration of individual, environmental, and social factors that the PRECEDE-PROCEED model is widely used for this purpose. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of educational intervention based on the PRECEDE-PROCEED model on prevention of vaginal infections in Jiroft city women.

Materials and Methods: In this educational trial study, among three health centers in the city of Jiroft, two centers were selected by simple random sampling. So that one of the centers (Late Maleki center) was considered as the test group and the other center (number one center) was considered as the control. Of each center, 58 married women were selected by systematic random sampling method. Data gathering tool was a questionnaire constructed by the researcher based on the PRECEDE-PROCEED model. Educational interventions related to women infections were performed in 8 sessions for the intervention group. Data were collected before and two weeks after the intervention and analyzed using chi-square test, Wilcoxon and Mann-Whitney tests.

Results: The results showed that both intervention and control groups in terms of education, age, and employment status were matched (p>0.05) The mean difference (before and after) predisposing factors (knowledge and attitude), reinforcement factors, enabling factors, and behavior in the intervention and control groups were significantly different from each other (p<0.05), so that the intervention group increased significantly after the intervention.

Conclusion: Due to the effects of educational intervention through PRECEDE-PROCEED model to improve preventive behaviors of vaginal infection, providing educational programs for women may help them in the promotion of safe behavior about vaginal infections.
