Background: The use of medicinal plants in Anjir Pulang Pisau Village has been carried out for a long time through knowledge that is passed down through generations to family members. But there is no documentation of local knowledge about medicinal plants. Objective: This study was aimed to investigate the use of medicinal plants in Anjir Pulang Pisau Village, Central Kalimantan-Indonesia. Methods: The data were collected through individual interviews using semi—structured interviews. Information regarding the local names of the plant, medicinal uses, parts used, methods of preparation, and administration route were documented. Results: A total of 28 medicinal plants were identified. The family Anacardiaceae, Lamicaeae, Poaceae, and Myrtaceae had the highest proportion of medicinal plants used (7% each). The most frequently utilized medicinal plant parts were roots (47%). The plant species used to treat the high percentage of disease was Curcuma zedoaria (Christm.) Roscoe. (16%). In terms of frequency of medicinal plant uses, the highest percentage of plant species (21%) was used to treat wound. Majority of the plant remedies in this study were prepared by decoction (40%), and most medicinal plant preparations were taken orally (75%). Conclusion: Further research is needed to identify unidentified family and plant species. Pharmacognostical and pharmacological studies are also needed for the identification of chemical compounds and proving the efficacy of medicinal plants used by local people.
