Tuberculosis (TB) progressivity treatment has been challenged by the emergence of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis strains that are resistant to OAT (Anti Tuberculosis Drugs). It makes difficulty to identify the symp- toms of tuberculosis that develop in the family. This study aims to deter- mine the effect of Foot Reflection Board (FRB) and booklet about tuber- culosis on the treatment of suspected lung tuberculosis in families. The model used was developed from the Health Belief Model through multiple interventions. This type of research is Quasi Experimental with “Pre-test and Post-test with control group design”. Data collection techniques are carried out through interview and observation methods. It is using bi- variate and univariate analysis also multivariate logistic regression. The population is families that have a history of pulmonary TB in the areas of Sewon_Yogyakarta of Public Health Centre, Sibela_Surakarta of Public Health Center, and Kauditan_Manado of Public Health Centre. The num- ber of samples was 150 respondents (75 experiments respondents and 75 controls respondents). As a result, multiple interventions influenced the minimization of pulmonary tuberculosis symptoms with a significance value of p=0,000. As conclusion, FRB and booklet about tuberculosis are a combination of appropriate interventions increasing knowledge and min- imizing symptoms of tuberculosis suspects experienced by families. It is because the higher of family’s knowledge related to prevention, the benefits of treatment and the dangers of failure treatment are increasingly aware of conducting routine treatment programs
