Zika Preparedness Latin American Network
The ZikaPLAN initiative combines the strengths of 25 partners in Latin America, North America, Africa, Asia, and various academic centres in Europe and their collaborators for addressing ZIKA.
ZikaPLAN takes a comprehensive approach by:
- addressing the knowledge gaps and needs in the current Zika outbreak to better understand the disease, prevent its spread and educate the affected populations.
- building a sustainable response capacity in Latin America for Zika and other emerging infectious diseases (EID)
