KABP Study is at the heart of knowing the target audience. There is increasing recognition within the international aid community that improving the health of poor people across the world depends upon adequate understanding of the socio-cultural and economic aspects of the context in which public health programs are being implemented. Such information has typically been gathered through various types of cross-sectional surveys, the most popular and widely used method being the knowledge, attitude, behavior and practice (KABP) survey. The present study assumes that each individual has her or his own Knowledge, Attitude, Behavior and Practices regarding issues related to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene issues. Thus, each individual is unique though many of them are living within homogeneous external environment. The underlying logic behind this assumption is that each individual has her or his own heredity and environmental factors which vitally determines their personality pattern and value system that ultimately shapes their attitudes, behavior and practices. Hence, each individual is unique and is significantly different from the others. Thus, in the present study, KABP has been considered as an individual characteristic. Separate scales have been developed for measuring Knowledge, Attitude, Behavior and Practice and the study was conducted at Murshidabad district of West Bengal. The scales were developed in Bengali so that even the rural women could reply them with minimal interference of the interviewer. The study was a collaborative effort of SPADE and Water For People.
