This st udy was conducted to determine the effectiveness of educati onal program based on James Brown model on knowledg e, attitude and nutritional behavior related to iron d eficiency anemia in high school girl students of Sy ric city.

A researcher-made questionnaire was the col lecting data tool which its validity and reliabilit y was confirmed. At the beginning of the study, the rate of knowledge, attitude and the behavior related to iron deficiency anemia of all students were assessed by the questio nnaire. Then the educational program was performed for the intervention group and after two months, both group s were compared again. Data were analyzed using SPS S statistic software version 19 and independent t-tes t, chi-square and t-test statistical tests.
