Pediculosis is a disease caused by the ectoparasite Pediculus humanus capitis. The bite will cause irritation to the skin caused by the saliva released when sucking the blood of a patient with pediculosis capitis. Anemia due to blood loss can also occur in people with pediculosis. The prevalence of this disease is generally found in environments with high population density and interpersonal contact such as orphanages, prisons and Islamic boarding schools. Community service was carried out on 5 -6 February2023 with the aim of educating the students of the Darussalam Bengkulu Islamic Boarding School about pediculosis capitis as well as examining the Hemoglobin (Hb) levels of students suffering from pediculosis. This activity was carried out well and was attended by 45 students who were boarding at the Darussalam Pasantren boarding house. Of the 45 students, 21 students (46.7%) were suffering from pediculosis capitis and were examined for Hemoglobin (Hb) levels with the result that 11 students (52.38%) had Hb levels below the normal value.
