Incidence of anemia among pregnant women is prominent health problems especially in developing countries such as Indonesia. The aim of the present study is to determine the prevalence of anemia among pregnant women in relation to infection of Soil-Transmitted Helminthes (STH) and Serum Iron deficiency in 10 priority villages for stunting control set by the government in Sumedang district, West Java. Methods: This is a community-based survey. Hemoglobin concentration was obtained from finger prick blood test. Containers for stool specimens and anal swabs were given to each woman at the time of hemoglobin fingerpick blood test showed positive results for anemia. Data were analyzed using SPSS software. Results: Out of 209 pregnant women examined we found 39 pregnant women (18.7%) suffering from anemia. Followed by serum iron analysis we found 23.3% of the total number of pregnant women with iron deficiency. On microscopic examination of fecal specimens and anal swabs we found no worm eggs or larvae in the specimens examined.
