In this study, we conducted the application of maternal and child health handbook to the mothers' schools, the application of maternal and child health handbook to the health volunteers' activities, the production of IEC materials and their showing on the street (TV99), the health education activities of puppet show by the general people (Teatro99), the evaluation trials by the retrospective application of Precede-proceed model to these activities, and the survey of the education level of the parents and the acceptance of family planning concepts in the Under-five Clinic.
