Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF) is a public health problem in which the number of sufferers and its spread is in line with population density, especially in Indonesia. Risk factors that are closely related to the pattern of DHF spread are environmental factors. The study aimed to analyze the relationship between environmental sanitation and dengue fever in Indonesia with a systematic review approach and an Islamic view. The research design uses the method of literature review and systematic review. They choose articles from the Google Scholar journal website using the PRISMA method (Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and Meta-Analyses). The article criteria used the keywords "Environmental Sanitation and DHF Incidence and Bivariate," publications in 2019-2022, and a cross-sectional research design. The results showed that the results of a literature search using the PRISMA method obtained 11 articles. The environmental sanitation variables associated with the incidence of DHF are waste management, water storage areas (TPA), installation of wire screens, waste treatment sites, and the condition of the home environment. The review of the Islamic religion concluded that Islam obliges us to keep the environment clean by maintaining the health of water sources, washing/purifying with holy water, and maintaining the sanctity of places crowded with people.
