A quite high asthma relapse was found in Public Health Center. One of the implementation which can be done is to arrange health education about the prevention of asthma relapse. This study aimed to determine the influence of health education and leaflet media on behaviour changing to prevent asthma relapse among asthma patients. The design of this study was pre-experimental with 26 sample sizes of asthma patients who were taken by purposive sampling technique, and the criteria are age > 18, relapse in 2015, and without other diseases. The Independent variable was health education and leaflet media, while the dependent variable was knowledge and attitude. Data were taken using the questionnaire that analyzed with the Wilcoxon signed-rank test (α <0.05). The results showed that health education and leaflet media have a significant influence on improving the knowledge (p = 0.000) and the attitude (p = 0.000) to prevent asthma relapse among asthma patients in Public Health Center. It can be concluded that health education with leaflet media influences preventing asthma relapse on asthma patients. Therefore, further research needs to research the effect of health education with other media that can influence behavior changing to prevent asthma relapse.
