The research design was one of the Quasi Experimental Design pre and post test with one group. All the health personnels like ANM, PHN, Health educators were considered as subjects for the study. The sample size was 40 and selected by purposive sampling technique. Pretest was conducted before the CME programme with the structured interview schedule. Post test was conducted after completion of the programme with the help of same tool. The pretest mean knowledge score among the health personnels was 3.15 ± 0.89 with the mean percentage 7.8 % whereas the posttest mean knowledge score was 4.47 ± 1.58 with mean percentage 11.17 %. The Z value was -2.555 and the p value was 0.011 (p < 0.05) which was significant at 0.05 level. Though the health personnels are already trained, during pretest their knowledge level was found to be poor and after training, the results show that their knowledge improved. Thus, there is a necessity to conduct inservice training programmes to update knowledge and skill of health personnels.
