Introduction:  Infected vegetables are a means of transmitting various and widespread parasitic and infectious diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the knowledge, attitude, and practice of women referring to comprehensive urban health service centers regarding vegetable disinfection in order to assess the educational needs in this regard and to make the necessary plans to increase people’s knowledge.
Methods: This was a descriptive cross-sectional study. The study population was women referring to comprehensive health service centers. A sample with a volume of 180 people was selected from a total of 5 districts in the north, south, east, west, and center of Yazd, which has a total of 22 comprehensive urban health service centers.  The data were collected using a questionnaire and entered into the computer through SPSS statistical software. Depending on the type of variables, appropriate statistical tests, such as ANOVA were used.
Results: The results showed that about 54.4% of women in this study had a good knowledge about vegetable disinfection. According to ANOVA test, there was a statistically significant relationship between attitude and occupation (p = 0.002). However, there was no statistically significant relationship between knowledge and practice with occupation (p = 0.46) and (p = 0.87). There was also no statistically significant relationship between knowledge, attitude, and practice with education level.
Conclusion: According to the results, it is necessary to use an educational program on the proper use of disinfectants for women in comprehensive health centers
Keywords: Knowledge, Attitude, Practice, Vegetable Disinfectants.
