The widely used health belief model was applied, because it focuses on the importance of perception and has better interpretation of understanding and predicting health behavior like medication adherence than other theoretical models (eg social cognitive theory, motivational interviewing or planned behavior model.

Medication adherence by health belief model and self efficacy variable in the bivariate analysis between the medication adherence and the variables of the health belief model, in tertiary hospital cases, the barrier to hospital use was lower so the adherence was significantly higher ( p 005.
Other reported models included the social ecological model , the nurse management model , , the structural model for determinants of adherence , leventhal's self-regulatory model of illness , the cost-benefit model , and the health belief model. Health belief model questionnaire was designed based on literature review and face validity was approved by five experts in the field of health education in expert panel content validity was approved with the content validity ratio and content validity index. Harris r skyler js, linn mw, et al: relationship between the health belief model and compliance as a basis for intervention in diabetes mellitus, in psychological aspects of diabetes in children and adolescents pediatric adolescent endocrinology, vol 10. Introduction the health belief model (hbm) is one of the first theories of health behavior it was developed in the 1950s by a group of us public health service social psychologists who wanted to explain why so few people were participating in programs to prevent and detect disease.
A psychosocial framework for under standing patient compliance is the health belief model, which is based upon the value an individual places on the identified goal and the likelihood that compliance will achieve that goal. In this study, the health belief model (hbm) was used to evaluate care seeking and treatment compliance among hypertensive adults hbm proved to be a valuable framework to develop and modify public health interventions and also serves to improve treatment compliance and reduce the risk of complications.
Some models attempt to predict adherence (eg, the health belief model, the theory of planned behavior), and some attempt to change patient behavior (eg, the transtheoretical model of change. The two groups include: the health belief model group: received educational intervention sessions based on the hbm conceptual framework, comparison group: received the traditional health education on knowledge about hypertension and compliance to medication and life style regimen. Poor compliance with prescribed treatment is cited as the major reason for inadequate control of hypertension in blacks and whites (3) improved understanding of patients' beliefs about hypertension could aid the development of public health strategies to reduce or control the disease. Following the health belief model (hbm), which posits that patients' appraisals of disease risk (susceptibility) and severity influence the practice of health-related behaviors 14, we assessed patients' perceptions of the seriousness of blood pressure, and consequences resulting from not taking bp medications (answer categories ranged from.
With the guide of the health belief model (hbm) conceptual framework, the study investigated factors affecting treatment compliance with antihypertensive therapy among patients attended three district hospitals in dar es. Treatment and required lifestyle modifications among compliance and the health belief model variables data was collected by means compliance to hypertension.

Individual perception of the benefits and risks of hypertension treatment as well as cues to action were found to be significant determinants of compliance behaviour the study highlighted the need for improved health education and follow-up measures to strengthen patients' perceptions about the benefits of treatment and compliance.
