Background: Knowledge and awareness about puberty health concepts, reasons and causes of specific changes in puberty period and familiarity with related health risk factors can prevent many youth problems. The present quasi-experimental study was performed to survey the effects of puberty health education on health behavior of secondary school girl students of Chabahar. Methods: The girl students of the third year of a secondary school in Chabahar were divided into experimental and control group (each consisting 40 students). A questionnaire was used to assess the subjects’ knowledge, attitude and practice, concerning puberty health concepts. An educational program in 12 training sessions was performed for the experimental group. Results: The experimental and control groups were similar in demographic variables and economic condition. There was a significant increase in the experimental group’s knowledge, attitude and practice scores concerning health behavior (p<0.0001). Conclusion: An appropriate educational program significantly improves girls’ knowledge, attitude and practice about puberty health. Therefore, more emphasis should be placed on the health education program to improve girls’ healthy behavior.
