Background & Objectives: Prevention and control of brucellosis is necessary to identify the influential factors. Therefore, this study has aimed to investigate the effective factors in preventive behaviors of brucellosis in ranchers of Charaoymaq County.

Materials & Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 200 ranchers participated who were selected via stratified random sampling from 5 health centers. To collect information, a questionnaire was used based on health belief model. The data analysis was performed, using SPSS 21, statistical tests of linear regression analysis, and correlation and description tests at a significance level of p < 05/0.

Results: In this study, there was a significant correlation between education level and preventive behaviors and among the structures of health belief model. According to regression analysis of health belief model structures, the strongest predictors of behavior were tips to action, self-efficacy, and perceived susceptibility.

Conclusion: Based on these results, using educational models can be effective in identifying factors influencing health behaviors. The findings of this study also showed that tips to action, self-efficacy, and perceived susceptibility are the most important predictors of behavior, and special attention must be paid to designing and implementing educational interventions on them.
