The incidence of TB-HIV in Indonesia is high and life-threatening, while on the other hand, TB-HIV patients have the right to get medical and financial assistance in health services. Therefore, integrated health services are needed within the framework of the National Health Insurance. Health workers are an important aspect in the various health care approaches to patients with TB-HIV. This study aims to determine and examine the role of Health Workers in TB-HIV control and obstacles that are faced by Health Workers in carrying out their roles at Panti Wilasa Dr. Cipto Hospital, Semarang.

Primary data were obtained from interviews with the Semarang City Health Office, health workers and patients at Panti Wilasa Dr. Cipto Semarang Hospital.
