Burden of Cryptosporidium infections in the Y



Announcement of a new publication of articles for Zoonoses newspaper. Cryptosporidiosis is a leading cause of diarrheal disease in certain populations, including young children and people with weakened immune systems. The epidemiology of Cryptosporidium, which is mainly waterborne, is a serious public health problem. Cryptosporidiosis is closely associated with animals and the shared environment, and is well suited to a One Health approach to prevention and control. In China, Cryptosporidium surveys of humans, various animal species, water bodies and other environments have been widely conducted, including in the Yangtze River Delta, which encompasses Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui. With the increasing integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta, advance preparedness and effective surveillance are necessary to prevent outbreaks of neglected tropical diseases, such as cryptosporidiosis, and to contribute to the prevention and control of infectious diseases throughout the region. . Furthermore, the epidemiological surveillance of infectious diseases is an essential public health measure.

In this article, the authors review the burden of Cryptosporidium in the Yangtze River Delta at the human-animal-environment interface, as reported since 2001, and to identify gaps and challenges in epidemiological studies of Cryptosporidium in this region from a One Health perspective, in order to provide baseline information for the formulation of prevention and control strategies.
