Tangerang and Subang Regency had implemented a national effort to eliminate lymphatic filariasis by five rounds of Mass Drug Administration (MDA) using diethylcarbamazine (DEC) and albendazole (ALB), pre-Transmission Assessment Survey, TAS-1 (Subang Regency); and TAS-2 (Tangerang Regency). The aim of this study is to analyze leverage and barrier factors of MDA lymphatic filariasis elimination program. The research was conducted by using qualitative approach through an in-depth interview from 84 informants to obtained information about the implementation of MDA for lymphatic filariasis elimination policy, resources and community empowerment in three-level health leading sector (Province, Regency, and District), and cross-sector collaboration. The sampling was done purposively and analyzed with thematic analysis. The leverage factors of implementation MDA for LF programs were local government’s commitment and the existence of health volunteer as community empowerment. Barriers found in its implementation included motivation of health volunteer through incentives and training, inadequate information about MDA LF and a limited number of drug distributors to monitor adverse effects. Mass drug administration for lymphatic filariasis elimination programs should hold promotion strategies and surveillance model in Post MDA based on specific contextual factors to improve implementation outcomes.
