Introduction: Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide and is one of the most important causes of anemia especially among girls. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of education on knowledge of high school female’s students of Sirik about iron deficiency anemia.

Methods: An interventional study was performed on 190 high school females’ students (grade1 to 3) in Sirik, which were selected by simple random sampling method. Subjects divided into intervention and control groups. Then the required data including demographic and knowledge were gathered by a questionnaire. Validity and reliability of questionnaire was approved. Two months after educational programs, the post test was done. Analysis was performed by SPSS software and T test and Chi- square tests. A p-value less than 0.05 were considered as significant.

Results: Mean age of subjects was 16.25±1.2. The difference between knowledge about anemia before intervention was not statistically significant but after intervention, knowledge of intervention group and control group was significantly deferent (P<0.05).

Conclusion: This study finding showed that education can effect on students' knowledge toward anemia. Therefore we suggest implementing an educational plan for girl's students in large scale.
