 Background and Aim: Health promoting behaviors are major determinants of health. Theory of planned behavior provides a useful framework for predicting and understanding health behavior. Integrating self-efficacy to the model will contribute to the prediction of behavior and intention. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between “Integrated model of planned behavior and self-efficacy” and health promoting behaviors of working women at reproductive age.

 Materials and Methods: This research was a correlational study aimed to model testing. Two hundred female workers working in 5 different factories were selected using random sampling method. The valid and reliable health promoting behavior scale was used as a tool in this research. LISREL 8.5 was used for data analysis.

 Results: The path analysis showed a significant path from self-efficacy to behavior. A significant negative path was also observed from daily hours of working and perceived behavioral to behavior. The path of subjective norms and self-efficacy to intention was significant. The path from education level toward attitude was significant. The path from working days to self-efficacy was negatively significant. Model fit indexes indicated the data were a good fit to the model.

 Conclusion: In total, the integrated model of planned behavior and self-efficacy is appropriate for predicting health promoting behaviors among working women of reproductive age.
