Teenager woman is one of the groups at high risk of suffering from anemia.

One of the causes of anemia is a lack of knowledge about anemia resulting in difficulties in cultivating good health behavior. This study aims to analyze the effectiveness of digital pocketbooks and posters on anemia knowledge in young women.
