World due to the effects of pesticides (P) is estimated about 39 million people yearly acute poisoning and 3 million people among them with heavy acute poisoning and 220 thousand people yearly dead people all over the world. Current situation of poisoning pesticides in Vietnam are still becomes serious. According to Ha Minh Trung, Vietnam is estimated that if there are about 11.5 million agricultural households with rate of 18.26 % poisoned chronic by pesticides, the number of chronic poisoning in the country up to 2.1 million. The main reason is due to abusing and use and indiscriminate pesticides, particularly 98.0 % due to abuse or mix 2 to 3 times condenser than guide on the package, with 84.17 % to 93.23 % not adequate using personal protective equipment (PPE) when spraying. The most pesticides using is in cultivating tea about both quantity and frequency of injection. Thai Nguyen has an area of nearly 16,000 hectares of tea, tea cultivation in many areas of remote and disadvantaged areas, socio-economic conditions of underdeveloped, low education level. Knowledge, practice about using pesticides is still restrictive, which causes bad effect on human health. To contribute for taking care of farmer health cultivating tea and build suitable interfere model with actual condition at these areas, we carry out researching this thesis with a view to: 1. Describe the knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) of farmer exposure to pesticides. 2. Determine disease model and describe some factors related to farmer health in cultivating tea 3. Construction and appreciate of effect of interfere model on human health protection suitably for current conditions in Thai Nguyen. 2 Charter 1 DOCUMENT OVERVIEW Pesticides is used spreadingly at every nation in the world with income over USD 30 billion from 2005. 1.1. The situation of using pesticides and knowledge, attitude and practice of farmers usually contact with pesticides 1.1.1.The situation of using pesticides Pesticides had existed from ancient period and until19th century, it was used widely but chemical methods at this time have not had big role in agricultural production. From the beginning of 20th century to 1960, oganic pesticides was invented and chemicals is used at maximum level and its bad consequences had started causing human and environment. The period from 1960 to 1980 had left many bad consequences on environment and community health. From 1980s to now, environment protection is paid more attention. In Vietnam, pesticides is used from 1957, means the periods of centered – plan economy from 1957 to 1990: importing and distributing pesticides depends on the state. Amount of pesticides was not used much, only about 15,000 tons per year. Most of them were medicals with so long reserved time or high poison. Period from 1990 to now, market economy with available goods and many types is used in timely. Amount of pesticides is used for heavy industry increasingly. 1.1.2. Knowledge, attitude, practice of person contacting with pesticides. Researches show using situation, unsafe pesticides reservation, lack of knowledge in obeying labor protection methods. Most farmers is lack of awareness, knowledge, subjective attitude about poison and practice untruthfully. 1.2. Effect of pesticides and some of risk factors related to farmer’s health Risk of environment polution: Result for study pesticides at some locals shows that amount pesticides in land, water and food at dangerous level and increasing risk. 3 Effect of pesticides on human health includes pernicious and chronic poison 1.3. Some studied intervention models to protect human health when exposure to pesticides has been deployed out in Vietnam The thesis related to this problem is still rare, especially in mountainous areas, highland such as Thai Nguyen. Some interfere researches have been carried out at some area in Vietnam: The thesis 11-08 of Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development in combination with Ministry of Health and Ministry of Defence has implemented from 1996 to 2000. In 2002, Bui Thanh Tam and her parner researched community model for using pesticides safety at a district of low land and a district of Northern highland. The subject Job Department of Occupational Health - University Thai Nguyen of Medical and Pharmacy has carried out many thesises related to human health in agriculture labor but it is only at experimental level. Until now, no thesis helps to protect farmer health cultivating tea when contacting with pesticides. Therefore, carrying out a research to take care of farmers here is very nescessary. Charter 2 SUBJECTS AND METHOD 2.1. Subjects 2.1.1. Subjects described - KAP study subjects, examinations assess the actual structure of common diseases and interventions are in direct spray pesticides in the tea growing households, have time for 5 years and tea area about over 1800 m2. - Person investigated and interviewing detail is bosses of pesticides selling shops at Tan Linh commune, People Commitee leader, Chairman of commune farmer Union, Chairman of the Commune Women's Union and some farmers. - Audience research is the only toxic products. 4 2.2. Place of the research Be carried out at Phuc Xuan commune - Thai Nguyen city and two communes including Phuc Linh & Tan Linh, Dai Tu district, Thai Nguyen province. This research is intervention at Tan Linh and controls Phuc Linh commune. 2.3. Time of the research: From January 2007 to June 2010. 2.4. Research method: Epidemiology research design describes cross-sectional design in combination qualitative and quantitative. Participation of community. 2.5. Sample size and sampling method 2.2.1. Sample size for descriptive study Describing sample interviews farmer’s knowledge, attitude, practice (KAP). Applying formula calculating sample size basing rate: n = z2(1- α/2) p(1-p)/d 2. With given number, n = 385 people. Person appreciated is 877 farmers usually contacting with pesticides in 385 households. 2.5.2. Sampling intervention studies - The sample size for intervention studies as follows: n = (Z 1- α/2 + Z 1 -β) 2 p1 q1 + p2 q2 (p1 - p2 ) 2 With given number, n = 90.16 (about 91 people). Take extra 20 % like this, sample size for each commune is 119 people. 2.6. Research design technique 2.6.1. Describing study Epidemiology research design describes cross sectional design in combination qualitative and quantitative 2.6.2. Intervention study Community intervention with comparison. 5 Intervention activities Communications: Combine direct communication with indirect communication with an aim to change behavior. Direct communication: Through training time, conference, practice guide. Especially, through club activity "Farmers - Small business- Medical staff". Indirect communication: On Media include many kinds and means. Examination of patients, drug treatment for some common diseases. Advise about health for pesticides user. Chapter 3 RESULTS Research 385 persons, we have the following results: 3.1. The current status of KAP about pesticides of tea cultivating farmer in Thai Nguyen (n = 385) Table 3.2.

Health situation and some factors related to the health of people regularly exposed topesticides - The most muscle symptoms of farmers contacting with pesticides during the last time is nervous system, digest. Some popular symptoms such as tiredness (77.9 %), headache (73.1 %), dazzle, vertigo (78.4 %. Some disease groups with high rate such as diseases about nose and sore (86.9 %), eyes (84.8 %), bone muscle (63.7 %), skin (40.1 %), etc. - The risk is due to: unsafe pesticides mixture, solider pesticides mixture than guide, mix many kinds of pesticides in the spray related to disease nose and throat, increased 2.66 times compared with the correct mixture. - The risk to spraying the windward with nose and sore diseases is 2.55 times more than right the wind direction pesticides - The risk of going on with disease due to unsafe medicine mixture is 2.31 times more than right mixture. The risk of having eye disease due to spraying wind ward increases 3.27 times more than using glasses. 3.3. Results of intervention studies 3.3.1. Intervention activities - Build Project implement leading committee, propose commune People Committee to set up "Farmers - Small business - Medical staff" club basing on links between “Farmer – The sale of pesticide – commune Medical staff”, keep the club once three months. - Organize three training classes for main officers to take charge of the program, organize 14 training days at village (a day for each village) with 856 participants. - Celebrate 02 conference days at commune People Committee with 397 participants. 04 training days at the edge. - Deliver 1000 books: “Chemicals are used for agriculture and community health”. Deliver handout to all 1469 households. Propagandizing on media of commune (259 days). 10 - All 6 commune Medical staff are trained again about against pesticides poison. Project Steering Committee combining with Commune People's Committee managing pesticide suppliers, vendors. - Every month, Management committee meets "Farmers - Small business - Medical staff" to appreciate results and withdraw experiments for activities in month and build next solution.

Intervention effect is the highest 55 % (increased salivation), the lowest has achieved 14,8 % (digestion) Chapter 4 DISCUSSIONS 4.1. Knowledge, attitude, practice (KAP), use, preservation and prevention of pesticide poisoning of tea cultivation 4.1.1. Some characteristics of study object By studying 385 subjects, we realize that secondary education accounted for 76.6 %, 13.5 % high school, elementary only 9.9 %. There is no illiteracy. Therefore, training, coaching, counseling of knowledge of pesticide poisoning prevention becomes easier to acquire. About sex, male makes up lower rate than female (female accounts for 53 % and male 47 %). A concern is that the percentage age of female having time to use pesticide more than 10 years accounts for higher proportion than male. In the study results, we can find that some one at the age of 20 years have exposure to pesticides for 5 years. That means that they sprayed pesticides at the age of 15 years. Interviewing Mr Tran Dinh D…, Health Station Chief says: “Some old people often have to spray Pesticides because their children work far away. At hamlet 7, Mr Hoang Quoc A.. at the age of 79 years and Mrs Le Thi H…at the age of 74 years still must spray pesticides”. This is the matter about which public health must care more in examining periodic health and health protection for people here. 4.1.2 KAP use, preservation and prevention of pesticide poisoning Knowledge, practice about using, preservation of pesticides is low. Most of KAP index does not reach 50 %. The majority of tea cultivator have active attitude to using pesticides (account for over 90 %), this is an important reason which can help intervention model be 16 successful. The public’s good attitude to preventing pesticide poisoning can help the model be feasible and the model is preserved sustainable in the community. Supply source of information to the public about how to use, maintain, and prevent toxic account for high proportion: (68,30 %) from medical staff, 58,7 % from seller of pesticides. This is the point which the research group chooses as breakthrough point, impacting on correct subject in the direct communication activities. 83,4 % age of buyer is guided how to use by the seller. However, they just receive poor information such as the way to choose the suitable one for each kind of tree, kind of pestilent insect. The store owner’s knowledge is limited; moreover, the source of information which they supply to customer is poor. Normally, they just introduce what kind of pesticides is suitable with the pestilent insect correlatively. They don’t grasp the knowledge of using pesticides especially poor knowledge of how to prevent toxic of pesticides. There is a lack of communication documents. Ms Nguyen Thi Th….at the age of 39 in hamlet 6, Tan Linh, the shop owner of pesticides shows that: “Most of people who come here to buy pesticides are always guided how to use, however, normally buyers just ask that their tea plant infected this kind of pestilent insect or other one, so what kind of pestilent insect they have to buy. Few people ask how to prevent poisoning. If they ask, we don’t understand to explain to them”. 4.2 Health situation of people who cultivate tea Some expressions such as being dizziness, vertigo accounts for 78.4 %, fatigue rate is 77.9 %, and headache rate is 73.1 % (table 3.17). The remarkable thing is the expressions of disease entities in some organs. Eye disease (84.8 %), nasopharyngitis (86.9 %), musculoskeletal joints (63.7 %), neuropsychiatric (51.1 %) (table 3.18). 4.3. Problem identification and intervention modeling to prevent pesticide poisoning and the effectiveness of interventions 17 4.3.1. Identify intervention problems and build the model From above analysis result, we choose the solution and build intervention model. The name of model: "Prevention of pesticide poisoning", some technical measure in intervening: This study used both direct and indirect communication which changed action, combined with periodic medical examination to detect, and to treat some diseases relating to pesticides. Some of the newest tendency and method: Linking between the users of pesticides (Farmer), traders of pesticides (Small business), and health workers (Medical staff). We call as "Farmers - Small business - Medical staff”. In this topic, we choose breakthrough point into the key stage is the main reason of the matter for highly effective selective and important intervention. - The Farmers exposed to pesticides are subject to interventions for changing benefit action to health and is also object need examining, management and taking care of health. - The seller of pesticides need to intervene to interventions the knowledge, counseling skills and is a direct communicator most effectively to usage, storage of pesticides. In fact, 83.4 % of buyers are guided how to use pesticides by sellers. - Medical staff are subject necessary to intervene to improve capacity of the treatment of poisoning and counseling skills. Also a direct communication are most effective for the prevention of pesticide poisoning. 4.3.2. The effect of intervention method 4.3.2.1. The effectiveness of intervention method changes KAP of pesticides user. After intervening 2 years, the public’s knowledge has been improved remarkably. The Index Effective obtains from 36.9 % to 88.7 %. The actual effect is between 21.5 % and 66.6 % (table 3.37). Most of farmers's knowledge has been improved above 20 % in comparison with that before intervention. 18 Active attitude to supporting the use of workwear and poison prevention reach 100 %. This is a convenient factor which can help project be successful. The rate of the public who practices in a true way, has been improved significantly after intervening 2 years and efficiency indicator achieves from 23.1 % to 88.0 %. Actual intervention effectiveness is from 13.0 % to 61.5 %. Comparing the effectiveness of intervention method at Tan Linh and Phuc Linh commune is different significantly (p <0.05). 4.3.2.2. The effectiveness of intervention method of improving people’s health who cultivate tea plant. Overall the rate of functional symptoms were significantly, more than 25.0 % comparing with that before intervention (p<0,05). Headache decreased from 84.0 % to 53.8 % from 82.4 % fatigue down 58.1 %, dizziness from 86.6 % to 56.4 %, trembling limbs from 70.6 % to 43.6 %, irritability from 52.9 % to 29.9 % (table 3.35). In comparison index of effective intervention group (29.5 % to 63.4 %) and control group (0 % to 8.4 %), we can see that index of effective of intervention group is higher than that of control group. Actual intervention efficiency is from 26.0% to 55.0% (Table 3:38) Entity diseases of nose - throat decreases from 84.9 % to 48.7 %, for eyes disease, there is a decrease from 95.0 % to 45.3 %. In our opinions, correct practice rate of intervention group has been improved. The use of mask and protection glass limits the penetration of pesticides into body. Besides, the intervention group usually examines and treats disease at once; therefore, the disease rate of intervention group is lower than that of control group. Through the result in table 3.38 we can see that the disease rate decreases after intervention. Actual intervention efficiency achieves 14.8 % to 55.2 %. To sum up, the initial target of project meets and exceeds the target. 4.4. Retention ability and model expansion 4.4.1. Feasibility and sustainability of the model 19 - Suitable model with Policy guidelines of Party and State towards agriculture, farmer and rural, farmer’s health is interested in by whole society. Local Communist Party and Government supported intervention model. Commune government committed to maintaining and to promoting the effect of model “"Farmers - Small business - Medical staff” in which the core of activities is Commune Medical Staff, and pesticide sellers especially the response of farmers. - Intervention model linked the relationship among Farmer - Small business and Medical Staff. Through training courses and conference, trader of pesticides and local medical staff know the communication skills of health education, and know how to use PPE and means of preventing poison of pesticides. After being trained, the farmer can grasp basic knowledge of preventing pesticide poisoning and especially their trust in trader of pesticides and local medical staff. They are willing to exchange their difficulties when using pesticides to pesticides sellers and local medical staff. - This intervention model “simply but effective” is easy to deploy in a large scale, the resource don’t need to be fit too much with economic condition in mountainous and highland area. The model has overcome some limitations that some previous encounter model is required enormous resources, the apparatus complex operations, while pouring money into the best result, project completion no pouring money the model is not sustainable, does not exist. - Sustainability of model: Because operation of model brings benefit for 3 factors which create the model: the farmer know how to prevent pesticide poisoning, reduce the number of cases, reducing the time hospital stay, hospital charges... especially health are guaranteed, this is the most precious property. When they are healthy, they can generate wealth for themselves and for society, get rich and contribute to their poverty reduction in particular and community in general. Traders of pesticides sell a great deal of pesticides because the people believe in only buying pesticides to their stores. Local medical staff finishes the plan of taking care of and protecting the public’s health, contributing to the successful implementation of local society - economic indicators, improving the living quality for rural people. 20 The result of model is a clear proof to convince local leaders and farmers to use pesticides. The above basic factors help the model succeed and keep up the model’s sustainability. 4.4.2. The new points of the dissertation - The dissertation gave indicator of KAP and structural disease of farmer growing tea in Thai Nguyen. Particularly the model building intervention to protect the health of farmers growing tea first fit the characteristics of mountain areas. That model is based on three factors cohesion "Farmers - Small Business - Medical staff". - The model “Farmer- Small Business - Medical Staff” is a new discovery of innovative approaches.
