Abstract


Zika virus is widely recognized to be one of the deadly infections in the world, which has led to the demise of some of its victims in different parts of the world. The study examined the role of knowledge and perceived vulnerability on perceived controllability among Nigerian custom officers. 500 custom officers in Seme (Lagos State), Idiroko (Ogun State) and Jibia (Kastina State) border were judgmentally selected as participants in the study. Data were collected via a standardized questionnaire that consisted of Zika Knowledge Scale, Perceived Vulnerability Scale and Perceived Controllability Scale. The data collected were analyzed using the Pearson correlation analysis, linear regression analysis, one-way analysis of variance and t-test statistic.

The results revealed amongst others that there is significant relationship between zika knowledge and perceived controllability (r=0.198; p<0.05) and no significant relationship between perceived vulnerability and perceived controllability (r=-0.042, p>0.05); there existed no educational differences among respondents in perceived vulnerability (F=4.12; p>0.05); perceived controllability (F=7.36; p>0.05) and zika knowledge (F=2.11; p>0.05). In addition to these, it was found that gender differences existed in perceived controllability (t=2.39; p<0.05). Based on this, the study suggests that Public health authorities in the Nigeria should continue to raise awareness among women of reproduc­tive age about the risk for Zika virus infection from travel, enabling them to better make informed decisions.
