Adolescent girls are the population group most vulnerable to anemia for various reasons. The purpose of study is to describe the level of knowledge of adolescents about anemia. The study used a cross sectional approach with a sample of 100 high school teenage girls who were taken by purposive method. Data collection was carried out using a closed questionnaire. The results showed that knowledge about anemia was mostly in the fairly good category (59.0%), followed by good knowledge (33.0%), and poor knowledge (8.0%). Most of the respondents did not understand the meaning, consequences, impact of anemia, and how to take blood booster tablets. There needs to be an effort to increase the knowledge of young women about anemia to prevent anemia.
