Meiliana Jauhari (born Jakarta, DKI Jakarta; 7 May 1984) is a female badminton player from Indonesia.

Meiliana competed in the women's doubles in the BWF Super Series at the 2008 Indonesia Super Series, the 2009 Malaysia Super Series, and the 2009 Korea Super Series with her then partner, Shendy Puspa Irawati.

Now, Meiliana plays with Greysia Polii in the women's doubles. Surprisingly, the first time they played together, they beat Korean pair Lee Kyung-won and Ha Jung-eun, 21-14, 21-12. At the 2010 All England Super Series, they reached the quarterfinals after defeating 4th-seeded Malaysian pair Wong Pei Tty and Chin Eei Hui in straight sets. In the quarterfinals, they played a rubber set against Pan Pan and Tian Qing from China but lost 23-25, 21-17, 17-21. They played at the Uber Cup but they lost to Ma Jin and Wang Xiaoli of China in the semifinals. They were the runners-up of the 2010 Macau Open Grand Prix Gold after losing to Chien Yu-chin and Cheng Wen-hsing of Chinese Taipei in the rubber set.

At the 2012 Summer Olympics, Jauhari and her partner Greysia Polii, along with Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na, Ha Jung-eun and Kim Min-jung of South Korea, and Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang of China were disqualified from the competition for "not using one's best efforts to win a match" and "conducting oneself in a manner that is clearly abusive or detrimental to the sport" following matches the previous evening during which they were accused of trying to lose in order to manipulate the draw.[1] Jauhari and her partner Greysia Polii played against South Korea's Ha Jung-eun and Kim Min-jung.[2] Indonesia filed an appeal to the case, but it was withdrawn.[1]
