Background: Adherence to lymphatic filariasis (LF) medication during the mass drug administration (MDA) program is an important factor for the success of the LF elimination program. Low adherence rate will likely increase the risk of filariasis transmission in the community. This study was aimed to explore factors associated with medication adherence among populations in Subang, West Java, Indonesia. Method: The researchers analyzed a subset of data obtained from 2017 LF multicenter study in Subang. 676 respondents were included in the analysis. Sociodemographic data including age, sex, marital status, and occupation as well as knowledge, attitude, and practices (KAPs) were collected. Multivariate analysis was performed to examine the effect of sociodemographic and KAPs on the adherence to anti-filariasis treatment. Results: In bivariate analysis, adherence was associated with attitude, gender, age, education and knowledge. In the multivariable model, adherence was significantly associated with education and knowledge. Conclusion: factors of education and knowledge were associated with medication adherence among populations in Subang. Socialization/monitoring of certain groups needs to be intensified to improve compliance and coverage of MDA so that the target of LF elimination can be achieved.
