Parasitic zoonosis is a threat to human health in Asian countries, but tend to be neglected. Foodborne trematode infections affect more than 56 million people throughout the world. People become infected through the consumption of raw or poorly cooked fish, crustaceans and vegetables that harbour the minute larval stages of the parasites, of which the most common species affecting people areClonorchis, Opisthorchis, Fasciola and Paragonimus. Recently, more emerging or re-emerging food-borne parasitic diseases occurred in Southeast Asia frequently.
Under the WHO roadmap of controlling the neglect tropical diseases (NTDs), schistosomiasis will be eliminated as a public health problem by 2020 in endemic countries of WPRO region. Therefore, the challenges and strategies to achieve this goal from different countries, including Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Lao PDR, and Philippines, are imperative to discuss with more actions.
