Good Nutrition and consuming iron supple-mentation once a week which is a government program, proven effective to prevent anemia. But, the lack of knowledge and adherence of adolescent girls to consume iron supplementation hinders the success of the program. Smartphone-based education media is a compelling alternative. The study aimed to develop a smartphone-based intervention model to educate adolescent girls about anaemia and facilitating adherence of iron supplementation consumption. This was an R and D (Research and Development) study, using the 6 steps System Development Life Cycle, namely: 1. Planning. 2. Analysis, 3. Design, 4. Im-plementation 5. Testing, 6. Maintenance. The results education model called "DR'E-DUMIND" is developed. It contains education and re-minder for taking Iron supplementation. The software requires a small storage space (7.90 MB), installed on a smartphone with the Android platform version 4.0.
