Tuberculosis is one of the leading infectious diseases in Indonesia. Its transmission, through droplet, causes the easy spread of this disease. The healthcare workers who work with infectious agents predispose them, especially who come into direct contact with tuberculosis patients daily, to develop this disease. The purpose of this study is to acquire the prevalence of pulmonary tuberculosis among healthcare workers in Persahabatan Hospital based on history of diabetes mellitus and HIV infection. This study used a cross-sectional descriptive study by questionnaires to the healthcare workers selected through consecutive sampling during the period on April-May 2010. The results showed that from 250 respondents, 10 (4%) respondents having history of diabetes mellitus and 10 (4%) respondents having history of HIV infection.
