Aims: Tuberculosis remains a significant public health challenge, impacting both productivity and mortality rates. The limited detection of TB cases can be attributed to inadequate funding, insufficiently trained staff, and ineffective educational resources for healthcare workers. This research aimed to develop an m-health tool, specifically a 'Health Corner,' to enhance understanding of tuberculosis screening and the successful treatment of tuberculosis.
Materials & Methods: This study employed a mixed methods approach, encompassing both design and development research. The intervention model underwent field testing using a quasi-experimental design involving a two-group pre-test post-test setup, with a control group comprising 60 randomly selected individuals from Legok Village, Jambi City, in September 2023. Data analysis comprised descriptive and inferential methods, including the t-test.
Findings: Health promotion material experts confirmed that the academic manuscript complied with the material requirements and aligned with the prototype under construction. Multimedia experts likewise endorsed the suitability of the M-HEALTH application for public use. Practitioner experts also confirmed that the M-HEALTH application was highly suitable for practical implementation. Field trial results revealed a significant increase in participants' knowledge levels after exposure to the M-HEALTH application. Average knowledge scores rose from 7.66 to 9.63 post-education, reflecting an average difference of 2.03 (p=0.001).
Conclusion: Using health education resources related to tuberculosis can effectively increase public awareness and knowledge about this disease.
