Background: Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is an infectious disease that can be fatal. At this time, transmission of dengue fever is easier due to many factors, such as high mobility of the population, environment,, and behavior. Behavior has a major influence in the high morbidity of the disease, such as lack of knowledge, attitude and action related to DHF. This study aims to prove the relationship between maternal knowledge and attitude towards the prevention of DHF. Methods: The research was using descriptive analysis cross sectional design. The sample of the study were 50 mothers with children under 19 years old with a history of DH F. The data were analyzed univariately and bivariately with chi square test and if the conditions are not completed, the alternative yate’s correction test will be used. Results: Most respondents have no good knowledge of DHF (52,0%). Some respondents have a good attitude towards DHF (50,0%). The yate’s correction test showed p=0,046 which means there was a significant relationship between respondents’ knowledge with DHF prevention. The chi square test showed p=0,007, which means there was a significant relationship between respondents’ attitudes towards dengue prevention. Conclusion: There was a significant relationship between respondents’ knowledge and respondents’ attitude towards DHF prevention. Keywords: knowledge, attitude, DHF
