The instrument used in this study were  : 1) Demographic data of population characteristics and adherence to tuberculosis treatment record 2) innovation “KKU-TB-BOX”. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics, chi-square test, independent t-test, mann-whitney u test and relative risk. Results of the study, pulmonary tuberculosis patients who received to the usual care with innovation “KKU-TB-BOX” had a significant higher appointment than who did not (X2=9.231, p<0.05), pulmonary tuberculosis patients who received to the usual care with innovation “KKU-TB-BOX” had a significant higher taking medicine than who did not (p<0.001).
