The American Schistosomiasis Delegation's trip to China was sponsored by the Committee on Scholarly Communication with the People's Republic of China. Since the Shanghai agreement in 1972, this Committee has been the primary American organization operating scholarly exchanges between the two countries. It is jointly sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, the Social Science Research Council, and the American Council of Learned Societies. Schistosomiasis was among the first exchanges negotiated between this Committee and China's Scientific and Technical Association in May 1973. The delegation's visit actually took place from 8 April to 2 May 1975.

While in China the American Schistosomiasis Delegation visited six cities—Peking, Shanghai, Soochow, Wuhsi, Hangchow, and Kwangchow—and several rural communes near these metropolitan areas. Our itinerary included three provinces with a well-known previous record of schistosomiasis endemicity—Chekiang and Kiangsu in the Yangtze Delta, and Kwangtung on the southern coast.
