Abstract

Introduction: Tuberculosis (TBC) is a global health problem and challenge. In Indonesia, TBC has affected 107 people within 100,000 populations with the prevalence rate of 0.7 percent. This data has placed Indonesia among the highest recorded TBC cases in the world. The implementation of DOTS strategies utilizing Drug-Taking Assistance or Pengawas Menelan Obat (PMO) is to ensure that the patients take up the prescribed medication on regular basis. Research suggests that employing family members or immediate relatives as PMO workers has increased the drug-intake the success rate. However, the result might vary across regions. Methods: This study specifically aims to evaluate the role of family members of PMO at the Puskesmas in the Cimahi south district, using qualitative approach. The total sampling uses to cover 30 respondents. Data collection employs winshield survey, structured interview, and FGD (Focus Group Discussion). Result: Data analysis using Mann-Whitney reveals that the role of family as PMO in the district under study was found to be less effective. Discussion: The primary cause is due to lack of education, especially their knowledge around TBC and the sense of responsibility of the role. These are all attributed to the minimum support from the Puskesmas staff in providing continuous training and mentoring. Key words: tuberculosis, Drug-Taking Assistance or Pengawas Menelan Obat (PMO), family
