The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation of stall sanitation on fly density and Cryptosporidium sp. presence on housefly. This study type was observational with a cross sectional approach in Jatian Village, Pakusari District, Jember Regency on December 2021 - February 2022. Data type was primary data that obtained using interview and observation. The correlation test that used was contingency coefficient test. The results showed that 77,5% of the stall had high fly density. Prevalence of Cryptosporidium sp. on housefly was 10%. Statistical analysis showed that cattle manure handling affected fly density (p≤0,05) with low correlation (r=0,384), meanwhile air vents affected Cryptosporidium sp. presence on housefly (p≤0,05) with low correlation (r=0,359). Farmers were suggested to keep the stall sanitation optimal to prevent Cryptosporidium transmission to humans.
