          Abstract

          Following concerted efforts for decades, great successes have been achieved in schistosomiasis control in China. Currently, the country is moving towards the progress of schistosomiasis elimination. However, there are many challenges for the national schistosomiasis elimination program in China, including the management of source of Schistosoma japonicum infections, control of the intermediate snail hosts, improvement of capability building and imported schistosomiasis. In order to achieve the goal of schistosomiasis elimination in China on schedule, we need to solve these difficulties and respond to these challenges efficiently, and require the precision identification of the risk factors for schistosomiasis transmission, followed by the implementation of precision interventions targeting these risk factors, and finally, the immediate adjustment of the control strategy based on the precision assessment. More importantly, the transfer of the experiences and products from the national schistosomiasis elimination program of China will make a great contribution to the global schistosomiasis elimination program.

          Abstract

          摘要: 经过多年积极努力, 我国血吸虫病防治工作取得了巨大成就, 目前正朝着消除血吸虫病的伟大目标稳步前进, 但当前消除血吸虫病工作面临着传染源管理难、钉螺控制难、能力建设提升难和输入性血吸虫病等诸多挑战。要如期实现消除血吸虫病的宏伟目标, 就要突破这些难点、有效应对面临的挑战, 需要精准识别血吸虫病传播风险因素、针对防治靶点采取精准干预措施、根据精准评价结果及时调整防治策略。及时将我国消除血吸虫病经验和相关血防产品传输到疾病流行国家, 将为全球消除血吸虫病做出重要贡献。
