AB  - OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to establish a basis for improving or
      strengthening the preventive strategy against scrub typhus in Korea by comparing 
      and analyzing the difference of prevention behaviors contributing to the
      occurrence of scrub typhus in Japan and Korea. METHODS: The survey was carried
      out in Jeollabuk-do, which is a high risk and high incidence area, and Fukuoka
      Prefecture, which is a high risk and low incidence area. The study included 406
      Korean farmers and 216 Japanese farmers. Data were collected through face-to-face
      surveys by interviewers who had completed standardized education. RESULTS: Korean
      farmers have a higher percentage of agricultural working posture that involved
      contact with weeds than Japanese farmers (p<0.05). The frequency and proportion
      of weeding were lower in Korean farmers than in Japanese farmers (p<0.05). The
      level of knowledge about scrub typhus was significantly higher among Korean
      farmers than among Japanese farmers (p<0.05). Mostly, the behavior of agriculture
      work was more appropriate for Japanese farmers than for Korean farmers (p<0.05). 
      The total average level of agricultural work was lower in Korea than in Japan,
      lower in men than women, and lower in part-time farmers than full-time farmers
      (p<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that it is reasonable to develop and
      provide a program that can improve the level of preventive behavior taking into
      consideration the characteristics of the subject in order to reduce the incidence
      of diseases in high-risk areas for scrub typhus.
