Patients’adherence is needed to get the effectivity of therapy, especially in chronic diseases. This study was aimed to know the risk factors which could affect the patients’ adherence in taking the refill oral of hypoglicaemic in private and government hospital in Indonesia.
Methods. We carried out this study by cohort prospective design during two months. Data was analyzed descriptively to know the risk factors which could affect patients’adherence in taking refill of oral hypoglicaemia in two hospitals.

Results. There were no differences number of male and female patients in both hospitals. Most of the patients were 56-90 years old and they received more than one drug in both hospitals. Respectively, age, gender and number of drugs were not being the risk factors of refill adherence in hospital. Nevertheless, the age of 21-55 years old in private hospital was the risk factors of refill adherence with 2.93 of RR (CI 95%, 1.27-6.76).
