Research on social behavior of shigella disease has been carried out at Jakarta Province. The goals of the research are to know about a health seeking behavior related with presence and people’s treatments in the research area on shigellosis and other diarrhea diseases. Data collected by using semi structure interview with interview guide. Data was collected from a health center in Tanjung Priok, Kebon Bawang III, Tugu Utara I and Tugu Selatan. This research is qualitative research with informant from key leader, community leader, provider and community groups, i.e.: mother under five years old children group, ethnic group, men worker group, old men group, old women group, patients who suspected shigellosis and a shigellosis cases. The result obtained a conclusion that the communities do not know the difference between diarrhea and bloody and mucous diarrhea/dysentery. They called this disease with a local term, i.e.: "muntaber" (diarrhea with vomit), mencret “(diarrhea)," (bloody diarrhea). "Dysentery" (bloody and mucous diarrhea), "mejen" (eager to defecated but not really happened), just blood and mucous throw up). Health seeking behavior is usually starting from self-treatment with traditional medicine. When the self-treatment did not get better, so they went to the health facility. According to the community, diarrhea was caused by the unclean environment, unmanaged water disposal, unclean food unboiling drinking water. Vaccination program for diarrhea is not available yet in Indonesia. Therefore, effective illumination for diarrhea which is done by health provider is needed.
