This scoping review analyzes the research gaps of three diseases: schistosomiasis japonica, malaria and echinococcosis. Based on available data in the P.R. China, we highlight the gaps between control capacity and prevalence levels, and between diagnostic/drug development and population need for treatment at different stages of the national control programme. After reviewing the literature from 848 original studies and consultations with experts in the field, the gaps were identified as follows… Expand
ONE Evolution of the National Schistosomiasis Control Programmes in The People ’ s Republic of China
Schistosomiasis japonica is caused by the parasitic trematode Schistosoma japonicum. It is endemic in The People’s Republic of China and has significant impact on human health and socioeconomicExpand
Evolution of the National Schistosomiasis Control Programmes in The People's Republic of China.
TLDR
To reach the goal of schistosomiasis elimination, further integration of interventions, multisector collaboration, sensitive and effective surveillance are needed to strengthen. Expand
Enhancing collaboration between China and African countries for schistosomiasis control.
Schistosomiasis remains an important public health issue, with a large number of cases reported across sub-Saharan Africa, and parts of Asia and Latin America. China was once highly endemic, but hasExpand
Preparation for malaria resurgence in China: approach in risk assessment and rapid response.
TLDR
This chapter aims to identify risk determinants of potential local transmission caused by the imported malaria cases and discusses gaps to be addressed to reach the elimination goal by 2020. Expand
A multi-component integrated approach for the elimination of schistosomiasis in the People's Republic of China: design and baseline results of a 4-year cluster-randomised intervention trial.
TLDR
The study design and baseline results of a four-year cluster randomised intervention trial aimed at determining the impact on schistosomiasis transmission of the multi-component integrated control strategy, including bovine vaccination using a heterologous "prime-boost" delivery platform based on the previously tested SjCTPI vaccine are presented. Expand
Operational research needs toward malaria elimination in China.
TLDR
It is argued that malaria elimination will be accelerated in P.R. China through the development of new tests, such as detection of parasite or drug resistance, monitoring glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, active malaria screening methods, and understanding the effects of the environment and climate variation on vector distribution. Expand
Domestic trends in malaria research and development in China and its global influence
TLDR
More focus on malaria R&D is needed, especially in the area of diagnostics, if China would like to contribute in a more significant way to global malaria control and elimination. Expand
Combating echinococcosis in China: strengthening the research and development
TLDR
There is a need for more research and work to be conducted in China on echinococcosis, including researching techniques in regards to diagnosis, treatment, and vaccination, and developing products through technical transformation and piloting strategies to control and even elimination. Expand
Approaches being used in the national schistosomiasis elimination programme in China: a review
TLDR
An approach to control the source of S. japonicum infection, three new tools for snail control, three approaches for detecting and monitoring S. tournaisian infection, and a novel model for health education are presented, considered to play a great role in the stage moving towards transmission interruption and elimination of schistosomiasis in China. Expand
Integrated Control Strategy of Schistosomiasis in The People's Republic of China: Projects Involving Agriculture, Water Conservancy, Forestry, Sanitation and Environmental Modification.
TLDR
This review illustrates the strategies implemented by giving successful examples of schistosomiasis control from the different types of remaining endemic areas and the challenge to control or eliminate S. japonicum is analysed. Expand

China’s new strategy to block Schistosoma japonicum transmission: experiences and impact beyond schistosomiasis
TLDR
This strategy showed an impact on diseases beyond schistosomiasis, signified by concomitant reductions in the prevalence of soil‐transmitted helminth infections and is encouraged to investigate the scope and limits of integrated control of neglected tropical diseases. Expand
Frontiers of parasitology research in the People's Republic of China: infection, diagnosis, protection and surveillance
TLDR
This thematic series deals with the most important parasitic diseases in P.R. China, emphasizing Schistosoma japonicum, Plasmodium vivax and Clonorchis sinensis plus some parasites of emerging importance such as Angiostrongylus cantonensis. Expand
Toward Sustainable and Comprehensive Control of Schistosomiasis in China: Lessons from Sichuan

Schistosomiasis japonica control and research needs.
TLDR
The analyses reveal that an integrated control approach, implemented through intersectoral collaboration, is essential to bring down the prevalence and intensity of Schistosoma japonicum infections and disease-related morbidity, and to sustain these parameters at low levels. Expand
Schistosomiasis Research in the Dongting Lake Region and Its Impact on Local and National Treatment and Control in China
TLDR
The epidemiological factors contributing to S. japonicum transmission in the Dongting Lake region are explored, and some of the key research findings from studies undertaken on schistosomiasis in Hunan province over the past 10 years are summarised. Expand
Schistosomiasis control and the health system in P.R. China
TLDR
The extent to which the health system offers a positive environment for the control of schistosomiasis is looked at, including the role and integrity of the public sector against its commercialization, the underlying value of equity, a systems wide perspective, and the role of advocacy. Expand

TLDR
The achievements of schistosomiasis control are solidified in Guangdong Province, however, the risk of schistsomiasis transmission still remains, and the surveillance should be continued, especially of imported infectious sources and snails. Expand
Time to set the agenda for schistosomiasis elimination.
TLDR
An agenda for the elimination of schistosomiasis would aim to identify the gaps in knowledge, and define the tools, strategies and guidelines that will help national control programmes move towards elimination, including an internationally accepted mechanism that allows verification/confirmation of elimination.

TLDR
The prevalence of hookworm, Ascaris lumbricoides and Trichuris trichiura infections has been reduced, and the number of infected people by soil-transmitted nematodes has declined remarkably, but the prevalence of Clonorchis infection significantly increased in the provinces of Guangdong, Guangxi and Jilin by 182%, 164% and 630% respectively.
