Background and Objectives: Cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) is a parasitic disease that its incidence has been reported in all continents except Australia. High prevalence of the disease has been observed in Iran and Soudai Arabia. BASNEF model is one of the most comprehensive models for behavior study as well as the forming new behaviors. Considering the endemic property of CL in Yazd city and important role of health volunteers to educate families, this study was conducted to explore contributing factors to educational behaviors of health volunteers to prevent cutaneous leishmaniasis based on BASNEF model. Methods: In a descriptive and analytical study, all health volunteers working in endemic regions of Yazd city (60 volunteers) fulfilled a questionnaire which was based on BASNEF model. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: Educational behaviors of health volunteers weren’t in a desired level. Health workers were identified as the most influential people for training of health volunteers (subjective norms). There was a significant positive correlation between behavior and attitude, behavioral intention, and enabling factors. There was also a positive correlation between attitude and knowledge, behavioral intention, and enabling factors. Conclusion: Only giving awareness to health volunteers can not create educational practice in them. We should enable them to educate families through effective training program that can give positive attitude and enabling factors to health workers and health volunteers.
