The village of Tanjung Harap in Serdang Bedagai Regency still has a high rate of tuberculosis in the elderly. This can occur because of the low awareness of healthy living and knowledge about pulmonary tuberculosis.

Counseling was carried out by means of questionnaires, lectures, and video screenings about prevention and what actions should be taken as prevention of infectious diseases, especially pulmonary tuberculosis, this activity ends with blood pressure checks and vital signs. The results of this counseling showed a positive impact and increased knowledge to protect themselves and prevent the transmission of pulmonary tuberculosis in the elderly. Based on the results of the activities carried out, it can be concluded that this has an influence on the insight, knowledge and concern of the community, especially the elderly who are in the village of Tanjung Harap Serdang Bedagai Regency.
