The analysis are find the value of p, sensitivity, specificity, PPV, NPV, and Kappa value. We get 160 respondents. Results of microscopic examination of sputum find 15 people (9,38%) were AFB positive and prevalence is 9.38%. Clinical symptoms that have highest sensitivity is cough for 2-3 weeks or more (100%). Kappa value for the cross check is 80% (good deal) with an error rate of 6.67 rate . The screening helps capture suspected pulmonary TB much more (national target 5-15%). It is recommended that training on the management of TB laboratory analyst officers in all PHC so the value of the agreement (kappa) with BBKPM can be increased and the error rate can be decreased.
