The optimization efforts of promotion, prevention, provision of preventive treatment, and infection control are strategies to overcome tuberculosis in Indonesia for the period 2020-2024. This research aims to analyze the effects of a collaborative model between health workers and family support to improve the success of treating patients with pulmonary tuberculosis. This is an experimental research using a one-group pre and post-test design. The study samples were TB patients treated at Bainamu and Bontosunggu Public Health Centers, Jeneponto Regency, from June 2021 to January 2022. Using McNemar's statistical test, the data analysis was conducted to determine the differences in patient behavior on factors that support and inhibit the recovery. The results showed that the collaborative model has an impact on eating, healthy living, and spiritual behaviors that support the recovery and cure rate of TB patients.
