Identifying high-risk areas of schistosomiasis and associated risk factors in the Poyang Lake region, China
The epidemiology of schistosomiasis japonicum over small areas remains poorly understood, and this is particularly true in China. We aimed to identify high-risk areas for schistosomiasis and associated risk factors in the Poyang Lake region, China.
