The district of Adilabad was selected purposively as the tribes are densely populated when compared to the other districts of the state. Tribal mandals selected for the study were Rebbena, Tandur and Kerameri. Score card was developed for data collection. Rank order and Quartile deviation were used for data analysis. The results of the study were revealed that Rank order of the perception statements showed that tribal women expressed their highly favorable perception towards the statements “Washing hands with soap before handling water and food”, “Boiling of drinking water for 10 minutes” and “Washing hands with soap after defecation” and were ranked as 1, 2 and 3 respectively by the tribal women.
