Pulmonary tuberculosis is a chronic infectious disease that has become a global issue. In Indonesia, this disease is one of the national priorities for disease control programs because it has a wide impact on the quality of life and economy and causes death. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates the prevalence of TB disease in the world, with 582,000 new cases per year, nearly half of which are smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis. The purpose of this PKM is to motivate the prisoners in class II prisons about the importance of preventing pulmonary tuberculosis. PKM activities are carried out by means of health education methods using a powerpoint slide show media to the Correctional Assistance Citizens at the Class II Padangsidimpuan Prison.
