New Zika Fact Sheet in English & Spanish - c/o [hipnet]

The Zika virus, a mosquito-borne disease, has reached epidemic proportions in Brazil and is moving north through Central America and the Caribbean. Several cases have been reported in the US and the World Health Organization estimates Zika will appear in nearly every country in our hemisphere, except the cooler areas of Canada and Chile.

To help people cope with this disease, Hesperian has rapidly developed emergency information on Zika, its symptoms, and how to take personal and community-wide precautions to limit its spread. Now available in English and Spanish, we are working on translations in Portuguese and Haitian Kreyol to ensure this health information reaches the people who need it most.

I hope you find this online, printable resource helpful. Please share it widely with your networks:

Spanish http://es.hesperian.org/hhg/Zika

​Best,
