The existence of a regulation requires the community to hold a party to have a latrine and not to defecate in any place, causing the ownership of latrines to increase. This study aims to determine the effect of cultural communication model, regulation and partnership on the ownership of latrines of community families in Rompu Village, Masamba Sub district, North Luwu District, Province of South Sulawesi. This research is a quantitative research by using quasi intervention design with two pretest and posttest design. The sample of 150 family heads is divided into three groups. One group of lectures, one group of modules and one group were not given lectures and modules. Data were analyzed by paired t test and anova. The result of the research shows that there is influence of cultural communication model to increase the ownership of family latrine. Increased latrine ownership after intervention in group 1 was 11, in group 2 was 1, while group 3 there was no addition of latrine. The provision of intervention in the form of modules and lectures with cultural communication model can increase the knowledge of respondents about the regulation of ownership of latrines and partnerships formed by the government to accelerate the community to have family latrines. It is recommende that village governments will make regulations governing the ownership of family latrines for each house and to build partnerships with others to help communities to build latrines.
