This study aims to determine the effect of video lecture as an intervention on the knowledge, attitudes and compliance to mass prophylactic treatment for Schistosomiasis among high-risks residents of Tambulig, Zamboanga del Sur. The research is a quasi-experimental pre and post study intervention design. A self-administered survey questionnaire was given two times during the research implementation; before the intervention and one month after the intervention. Results showed that the overall knowledge as assessed by the post-intervention exam improved significantly (p-value <0.05) when compared to the baseline knowledge scores. On the attitude questions, comparing the pre-test and post-test, all items have showed a significant increase or improvement in the attitudes of the respondents in the experimental group with a p-value of 0.000. The mass treatment compliance by the means of taking the anti-schistosomal prophylactic drugs also had a positive outcome in which the mass treatment compliance in the experimental group (89.3%) was shown to be statistically significant compared to the mass treatment compliance in the control group (33.7%) with a p-value of 0.000. The study concluded that video lecture is an effective strategy in increasing the knowledge, reinforcing positive attitudes and increasing the mass treatment compliance among high risk individuals regarding schistosomiasis. Following the results of this study, it is recommended that video lecture can be utilized to complement the existing programs in rural areas with high prevalence of Schistosomiasis and yet has low compliance to prophylactic treatment in their fight against Schistosomiasis, as multimedia has been shown to help attract people and get their attention.
