This research uses a descriptive method. The population in this study were all families accompanying pulmonary tuberculosis patients who were still registered and actively seeking treatment at the Sukorejo Health Center from January to April 2023, totaling 20 people. A sample size of 20 accompanying families of pulmonary tuberculosis patients was taken using total sampling technique. Data collection used an instrument in the form of a questionnaire. The results of the study were: family knowledge about preventing the transmission of pulmonary tuberculosis using TikTok media as much as 80% in the good category, 20% in the enough category. Not all families can understand the prevention of pulmonary tuberculosis transmission using TikTok media, so a holistic approach is needed.
