China used to be one of the most heavily endemic countries for lymphatic filariasis (LF) in the world. The Chinese Government has designated the control of the disease to be a top priority. Due to decades of sustained efforts, close cooperation related to LF control among government departments, and active participation of endemic populations, an all-round campaign for prevention and control has been carried out vigorously and successfully. Over many years, great achievements have been made through persistent endeavours of Chinese scientists and disease control workers. The ultimate goal to eliminate LF in the country was achieved in 2006.
