Abstract

Housing conditions are a factor that determine the state of hygiene and environmental sanitation. Housing and environments that do not meet health requirements are risk factors regarding disease transmission, for example, pulmonary tuberculosis. This research was conducted to determine the relationship between healthy housing conditions and the incidence of tuberculosis in Palengaan, Pamekasan. This was an observational study, based on its time and was a case-control study. Data analysis was conducted using a Chi-square test with α = 0.05. This study assessed healthy housing conditions using the observation sheet from the technical guidelines of the assessment regarding healthy housing conditions by the Directorate General of Communicable Diseases Eradication and Environmental Health in 2002.The variables used, resulting from the housing health assessment include: (a) house components; (b) sanitary facilities; and (c) occupant behavior. Individual characteristics include: a) age; (b) gender; and (c) education, and residential density. Based on the study results, the assessment for healthy housing conditions are associated with the incidence of pulmonary TB; the Chi-square test indicated p = 0.000, OR = 35.10, and in three groups of house health assessments, the behavior of occupants is associated with the incidence of pulmonary TB, with the chi-square test p = 0.001, OR = 8.233. it can be concluded that houses with healthy conditions can reduce the risk of pulmonary TB incidence and, in particular, poor behavior of occupants can increase the risk of pulmonary TB incidence.
