A sample of 284 respondents was taken using proportional random sampling technique from 990 patients with pulmonary TB in the North Surabaya area. The instrument used was a questionnaire that had been tested for validity and reliability. Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation test at α ≤ 0.05.

The Pearson correlation test results obtained family stress level associated with TB medication adherence (p = 0.004) and family resilience has a relationship with TB medication adherence (p = 0.001).
