Background: Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the oldest human diseases, with molecular evidence dating back more than 17,000 years. Unfortunately, despite new forms of diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis, people are still suffering. Worldwide, it is one of the top ten killer infectious diseases in the world, second only to HIV. South Sumatra is one of the provinces with the TB Suspect Prevalence Period, which is still below the national level, namely 1,765/ 100,000. This study aimed to determine the performance of tuberculosis program implementing officers in the suspect network of tuberculosis at Community Health Center, Palembang.

Subjects and Method: This was a cross sectional study. A sample of 132 TB program implementing officers was selected by total sampling. Performance appraisal is carried out using 360-degree feedback. The data was analyzed by chi square.

Results: Univariate analysis showed that officers had poor performance (61.4%). The most dominant factor influencing performance was motivation with the largest PRadjusted value of 7.4.

Conclusion: The performance of the TBC program implementing officers is influenced by knowledge, attitudes, years of service and facilities.
