Cases of pulmonary Tuberculosis (TB) increase every year. The strategy to control pulmonary TB cases is to improve motivation and adherence for the treatment of pulmonary TB patients. The family has a role in caring for family members affected by pulmonary TB. This study aims to analyze the relationship between the implementation of family health tasks with motivation and treatment adherence of pulmonary TB patients at the community health center. This study used a cross-sectional design. The independent variable was a family duty in care. The dependent variable was motivation and adherence to the treatment of pulmonary TB patients. The study samples were 50 pulmonary TB patients at the community health center. The data was collected by distributing questionnaires. The statistical test used a chi-squared test with a significant degree of p <0.05. The statistical result shows that the implementation of family duty in care has a relationship with motivation for treatment (p = 0.001) and treatment adherence (p = 0.01) of pulmonary TB patients.
