Pretest was conducted than STP was implemented, after two weeks posttest was conducted using by same questionnaire. The data were analyzed using IBM SPSS version 26. The study revealed that pretest means score of knowledge was 14.60±2.18. The posttest mean score of knowledge was 18.18±4.27. The mean difference was 3.58. Here paired ‘t’ test was applied to find statistically difference between pre and posttest knowledge score. As result show that t49=6.585, p=0.001 which indicate statistically significant at 0.01 level. The study found that STP significantly impacted adolescent girls' knowledge of UTI prevention. Thus, it was concluded that the educational intervention for preventing urinary tract infections in adolescent girls enhanced their knowledge.
