Progress in China on developing prediction models using remote sensing, geographic information systems and climate data with historical infection prevalence and malacology databases is reviewed. Special reference is made to the effects of the Yangtze river Three Gorges dam project on environmental changes that may impact changes in the spatial and temporal distribution and abundance of Schistosoma japonicum in China, and the future success of disease control programs.
