Urinary infection is one of the most frequent difficulties in women and because of the changes in the body, pregnant women are more susceptible. This study aims to determine the effect of health education based on health belief model on behavioral promotion of urinary infection prevention in pregnant women. In this experimental study, 110 pregnant women referred to the health centers in Behbahan city were chosen. They were divided randomly into case and control groups. The data were collected through a questionnaire. After the initial tests, the results were analyzed with Chi-square, t-student and correlation tests. Then, educational contents were designed and executed. One month later, the post test was conducted and data were analyzed with the use of SPSS-16. The pregnant women’s age average was 25. Among the pregnant women who were employed or housekeepers, there was a meaningful difference considering knowledge (P=0.02). Also, among the average of awareness points of pregnant women, there is a meaningful difference (P=0.001). The average regarding scores for knowledge and other components of health belief model before and after intervention, there has been a meaningful difference (P=0.00). The scores for knowledge and other components of health belief model in experimental group after intervention compared to control group significantly increased. This study indicated that health education program designed for advancement in prevention behaviors from urinary infection has been effective. Therefore, this model can be used as a framework for designing and executing educational intervention for prevention of urinary infection.
