Zika awareness and prevention toolkit : resources to help educate Hispanic/Latino travelers in your community
  • Description:
    Zika virus remains a major public health concern today. Since 2015, more than 5,600 cases have been reported and the vast majority have been acquired during travel.1 Zika also continues to be a threat for pregnant women. A Zika infection during pregnancy can cause birth defects and other severe fetal brain defects.

    To help prevent the spread of Zika in the United States, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Travelers’ Health Branch has developed a national awareness campaign to educate Hispanic/Latino travelers about Zika. Many U.S. Hispanics/Latinos traveling to visit friends and relatives believe they won’t contract Zika in their country of origin. According to one poll, almost 40% still want to travel to a country with reported cases of Zika and 62% aren’t concerned with spreading Zika after they return.2 This is why the CDC Travelers’ Health Branch Viajo sin Zika campaign focuses on reducing infections among Hispanic/Latino travelers. The campaign will raise awareness about the risks of Zika, provide ways that travelers can protect themselves and loved ones, and help prevent the spread of Zika before, during, and after a trip to Latin America or the Caribbean.

    You have the trust of the Hispanic/Latino members in your community, and they know that you look out for their interests and well-being. You can inspire and motivate them to make choices that protect their health and quality of life. Help us inform your community so they can take preventive measures and avoid getting infected with the Zika virus when they travel to their country of origin to visit friends and family.
