Anemia in pregnancy is currently still a major problem experienced by almost half of pregnant women in all countries in the world, including Indonesia. Anemia in pregnancy is a national problem because it reflects the value of socio-economic welfare of the community, and has a huge influence on the quality of human resources. The Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) is an indicator of the success of health services. In 2014 the Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) in the world was 289,000 soul. Several countries have quite high MMR, such as Africa with 179,000 people, South Asia with 69,000 people (WHO, 2014). The aim of the study was to determine the effect of husband's support on the incidence of anemia in pregnant women at the Rumbai Health Center in Pekanbaru City in 2017.
