Description:US Zika Pregnancy Registry: How to Participate -- Who to Report to the Registry -- How To Report to the Registry -- How the Data are Collected -- More Information about Zika -- CDC Guidance Materials.
Zika virus infection during pregnancy has been linked to adverse outcomes including pregnancy loss and microcephaly, absent or poorly developed brain structures, defects of the eye and impaired growth in fetuses and infants. Despite these observations, very little is known about the risks of Zika virus infection during pregnancy. Information about the timing, absolute risk, and spectrum of outcomes associated with Zika virus infection during pregnancy is needed to direct public health action related to Zika virus and guide testing, evaluation, and management.
To understand more about Zika virus infection, CDC established the US Zika Pregnancy Registry and
is collaborating with state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments to collect information about pregnancy and infant outcomes among pregnant women with laboratory evidence of Zika virus infection and their infants. The data collected through this registry will provide additional, more comprehensive information to complement notifiable disease case reporting and will be used to update recommendations for clinical care, to plan for services for pregnant women and families affected by Zika virus, and to improve prevention of Zika virus infection during pregnancy.
