Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial infectious disease that has become a global concern. Indonesia is a country with the third highest TB burden in the world, after India and China, every 30 seconds one person is infected with tuberculosis, and an average of 13 people die every one hour. One of the causes of failure is patient adherence to treatment so that causes of failure treatment and lack of discipline for sufferers of pulmonary TB are strongly influenced by the Drugs Supervisor. This study aims to provide an overview of the behavior of supervisors taking medication (PMO) on the attitudes, adherence and quality of life of patients with pulmonary TB. This study used an observational descriptive method with a cross-sectional design. The sampling method in this study was purposive sampling with 70 respondents as respondents. The results revealed that respondents (45.7%) had enough attitudes, (61.4%) obedient categories and while the respondents' quality of life (64.4%) was sufficient. Based on this, it is expected that the support and motivation of supervisors to take medicine can improve the attitudes, adherence and quality of life of patients with pulmonary TB.
