Concerning the relationship with the service, identifying factors that limit its effectiveness, such as the disability in the structure and in the human resources of health facilities. Conclusion: It was found that the community health workers respondents are vital to the control of tuberculosis, with potential to build bridges between the health services and community, plus the ability to develop an approach based on relationship, accountability and solving health problems of individuals and family, and still produce health actions permeated by cultural, social and perceptions of health disease, promoting the union between the use of scientific knowledge in health and local beliefs.
