November 2020 marks the 70th anniversary for the National Institute of Parasitic Diseases at Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (NIPD) & Chinese Center for Tropical Diseases Research (CTDR), based in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China. As reported by external evaluation team from World Health Organization that "NIPD-CTDR is an important resources in the control and elimination programmes of parasitic diseases and tropical diseases in China (…) and have become a model for the developing world". Therefore, this volume covers the major achievements gained on the research and control of parasitic diseases in China, e.g. schistosomiasis, malaria, lymphatic filariasis, echinococcosis, visceral leishmaniasis, soil-transmitted helminthiasis, food-borne clonorchiasis, angiostrongyliasis, taeniasis and cysticercosis, etc. in 13 chapters. It also introduces the approaches for the institute development in better use the big data by analytic tools, improving surveillance-response systems at national and regional levels, and promoting the national parasitic resources center to support various research and control activities during last decades. Finally, the chapter on roadmap for parasitic diseases control in China from 2020 to 2030 is presented to echo WHO 2030 roadmap on neglected tropical diseases control.
