Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is a public health problem in Central Jakarta. The purpose of this study was to determine the distribution and density of Aedes aegypti in Paseban Village, Central Jakarta after health education. Using a cross-sectional study design, data collection was done one month after the health education about DHF (June 21, 2009). The survey was conducted in all the containers in 100 houses with a single-larval method, which takes the larvae from each container and then identified using a microscope. The data were analyzed by chi-square test. The results showed, house index was 29%, container index was 7.6%, and breteau index was 35. Ae. aegypti distribution and density was high, exceeding the standard indicators (house index> 10%, container index> 5%, Breteau index> 50), although residents have been given health education. The chi-square test (p = 0.018) showed significant differences between the presence of larvae in the “bak mandi” and buckets with other container types. To conclude, DHF vector distribution and density in Paseban Village is still high, although it has been given health education.
