Background and purpose: We evaluated awareness of general practitioners (GP) of Mazandaran province to diagnosis, management and prevention of cholera Materials and methods: In a prospective study, 156 GPs answered to a questionnaire containing 15 questions in a face to face Interview. Sampling was randomly. Results: Sixty eight (43.6%) were female and 88 (56.4%) were male. The mean age of male was 42±7.8 years and female was 40±5.8 years. In total, awareness level of GPs about cholera was moderate in 89 (57.1%) and good in 48(30.8%). The awareness about diagnosis of cholera was good, moderate and poor in 23%, 69.9% and 7.1%, respectively. Also 17.3%, 71.8% and 10.9% of GPs had a good, moderate and poor (respectively) awareness of treatment. The awareness level of GPs about prevention of cholera was good, moderate and poor in 26.3%, 59% and 14.7%, respectively Conclusion: Given the moderate level of awareness of GPs about cholera, raises the need for more planning for control of epidemic.
