One LGA was selected from each of the three senatorial districts of Edo State. A study of this nature is therefore imperative and timely given the fact that implementation of its recommendations will promote good IPC, healthcare service delivery and health workers safety with regards to the management of Lassa fever and other potential hospital-acquired infections. Abstract Good adherence to standard precautions and infection prevention and control IPC practices in healthcare settings has been identified as an important factor in the control of potential outbreaks of Lassa fever within the hospital setting.
In a related study at Owo and Ose LGAs of Ondo State, in south-western, Nigeria less than half of participants had good knowledge of Lassa fever.
I failed in my efforts as an anthropologist to define the reasons for such a state. The instrument of data collection was a semi-structured questionnaire administered to HCWs to assess their knowledge and attitude on Lassa and their practice of IPC.
 In Nigeria, the 2012 Lassa fever outbreak recorded 623 cases including 70 deaths reported from 19 out of the 36 states in the country. More of the respondents were in the age-groups of 20 — 29 years, 30 — 39 years and 40 — 49 years as the proportion of participants in these age-groups were 24. 5 was assessed as good attitude. Furthermore, the above observation is buttressed by the finding of higher level of good knowledge of Lassa fever among HCWs in tertiary compared to those in primary or secondary healthcare facilities in this study.
Building a cultural basis for the sake of rescuing the disappearing cultural tradition is not the only goal prompting cultural reconstruction.
