The Health and Environmental needs of Adults in Al-Madina AL-Munawara (A descriptive Study)

Auther : Mohammed A. Al-Dkheel & Hamdy A. Al-Sabbag

This research aims to identify the health and environmental educational needs of a sample of educated persons in Madina Munawwara city, and also to find out whether those needs differ respective to sex, social status, qualification, and professions. In addition, we wanted to know the reasons which motivate people to read the health and environmental topics and to know the means and processes on which they rely when they want to satisfy those needs.

In order to achieve that purpose, a questionnaire, developed, for this study, included all the essential topics and a list of the health and environmental educational needs. It also included two questions; one about the reasons and the other about the means.

The questionnaire was applied on 707 educated adults in Madina Munawwara city.

In order to analyze the data, the researchers used the means, t-test and Anova.

The results revealed that the health and environmental educational needs of the sample vary and differ according to, sex, social status, qualifications and professions. There were also some health and environmental educational topics that represented high needs for the sample with all its variables, e.g., infectious diseases, health care, personal hygiene, sense organs care and how to protect them, human nutrition, immunity, vaccination against different diseases and the health problems of pregnancy.

The recommendations emphasized the importance of enlightment and mass media programs regarding the problems of the environment. Involvement in the environmental topics is not up to the importance of the environment and its problems and how to protect it.

People should be motivated to read in health and environmental topics, and also to benefit from the Distance Education Programmes for supporting and spreading the health and environmental education in the society.
