A quasi experimental study with experimental approach was undertaken to identify the effectiveness of instruction cum treatment on haemoglobin levels among adolescent girls between 15-19 years of age. Data was collected longitudinally. Seven hundred and forty six anaemic adolescent girls were selected by multistage random technique and were divided into three groups i.e treatment I, II and control group. Study findings revealed that 63% of them had mild anaemia and 34% had moderate anaemia in all the groups. None had severe anaemia. Comparison of mean, SD and mean difference with regard to haemoglobin level of anaemic girls reveals that the effectiveness of treatment was higher for those in the treatment I.
Conclusion: It is concluded that deworming, STP, SIM and iron treatment for 100 days was effective in gain in heamoglobin levels while comparing to treatment II i.e deworming, SIM and iron treatment for 100 days.
