This research was conducted to determine the effectiveness test of papaya leaf extract with a concentration of 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80% and 90% and 100% against staphylococcus epidermidis bacteria. Staphylococcus epidermidis is a gram-positive bacterium in the form of cocci and is harmful to humans. This research was conducted with an experimental method with a post-test only design and sampling with a purposive sampling method. The investigation of the effectiveness of papaya

The results of this study were analyzed out with the One-Way ANOVA test followed by the Post Hoc Test. The test showed that there were significant differences from each treatment given with a 95% confidence index. The bacteria treated with papaya leaf extract 100% against staphylococcus epidermidis had the highest average inhibitory zone power compared to other concentrations of 14.97 mm. The papaya leaf extract 100% has the best antibacterial effect compared to other concentrations because the best inhibitory zone power is found on those extract concentrations.
