To assess the financing changes of schistosomiasis control programmes in China and estimate the impact of these changes on patients'treatment-seeking behaviour and control of schistosomiasis, a survey was conducted in five schistosomiasis-endemic areas of the lake regions, Hubei province, in 1996.
This paper reports financing changes and their impact on the incidence and prevalence of schistosomiasis from one of the five areas as a case study.
By examining the surveillance and financial data from 1980 to 1995, and through focus group discussions we found that the schistosomiasis control programmes in People's Republic of china have gone through dramatic financing changes from 1980 to 1995, when the transitions of China's social, economic, and political systems happened.
The proportions of funding to schistosomiasis control programmes from high level governmental agencies, county budgets, and services revenue changed from 60%, 23%, and 17%, respectively, in 1980-1987 to 0.7%, 22.3%, and 72% in 1995.
The percentageages of expenditure of schistosomiasis control activities, salaries and bonuses, and other activities unrelated to schistosomiasis control, were 53.5%, 14.4, and 17.2% in 1980.
These percentageages changed to 7.7%, 33.3%, and 53.3%, respectively, in 1995. (...)
