Abstract. Tuberculosis (TB) control program will be more emphasizes on social determinants. It is because those social determinants directly or through TB risk factor influence TB incidence. This study aimed to identify significant influence of social determinants and TB risk factor of TB incidence. A total of 238 smear-positive TB patients and 238 patients without TB, were obtained from all smear-positive TB patients as well as TB suspects, in all of Directly Observed Treatment Shortcourse (DOTS)’s health service facilities, in Bandar Lampung, Indonesia. Data were collected, by structured interview questions, and was then analyzed using both bivariable Chi square and multivariable logistic regression analysis. The results showed that social determinants (education and income per capita), housing condition (ventilation and house density index) and household food security (food budget) proved significant influences to the TB incidence. Those indicators could explain 50.7% variation of the TB incidence. In conclusion, TB control program should highlight social determinants, housing condition, and household food security improvement. However, the program will require participation of all related institutions and should also be supported by an appropriate government policy. Keywords: tuberculosis, social determinants, housing condition, household food security, health access, DOTS strategy
