Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of morbidity, mortality and disability around the world. Education based on training models such as the health belief model is one of the most basic methods of prevention of diseases. The present study was conducted to determine the impact of teacher education based on the HBM model on promoting knowledge, attitude and performance of students in prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

Method: This interventional study was conducted on 78 first grade high school teachersand 467 of their students in the city of Dehloran during 2013-2014. Teachers were divided into two groups of intervention (n=41) and control (n=37) and students were also divided into two groups of intervention (n=249) and control (n=218). Intervention group teachers participated in 6 planned educational sessions based on the HBM model using teaching aids. Teachers completed questionnaires after 3 months and students after 6 months. Data was analyzed by SPSS software through descriptive tests, paired-t test and independent t-test.

Findings: The perceived benefits structure significantly changed for teachers in the prevention of cardiovascular disease (p <0.01). The performance of intervention group students significantly changed in prevention of cardiovascular diseases.

Conclusion: Educational intervention can be used as an effective factor in reducing risk factors of cardiovascular diseases in teachers and students through the HBM model from low ages.
