Brebes Regency is a new endemic area for lymphatic filariasis in Central Java Province, Indonesia, which has farming area and coastal area. This study aimed to analyze the lymphatic filariasis cases distribution in Brebes Regency for preparing environmental strategy of elimination. This was a descriptive study with spatial and documentary approach. The scope of lo-cation covered all subdistricts. The lymphatic filariasis case distribution was analyzed spatially. The analysis of zero case subdistricts vulnerability and environmental control preparation were composed based on previous stud-ies and secondary data. The result showed that most cases were located on farming area. The zero case subdistricts were vulnerable. Three concepts of environmental control approaches were composed. It was concluded that elimination program in Brebes Regency should prior the farming areas. It was a unique finding that the previous studies told the contrary that coastal areas were more vulnerable for lymphatic filariasis.
