The objectives of the study were: a) to assess the knowledge regarding bacterial infections among mothers of under-five in selected community areas in Kerala b) to find out the association between knowledge regarding bacterial infections among mothers of under-five with selected demographic variables such as age of mother, type of family, area of residence, educational status, occupation, immunization of the child and source of information. A quantitative approach was used in the study. Purposive sampling technique was used. Sample consisted of 100 mothers of under-five residing in selected community areas of Kerala.
