Zika Virus Resources

Zika is a virus that can be transmitted by mosquitos, through sexual activity, or by a pregnant woman to her fetus. The Zika virus is a global public health emergency that requires an urgent response. We all deserve access to comprehensive, evidence-based information about Zika transmission, prevention strategies, trends, and advocacy—including information about abortion and contraception. ARHP is continually updating this page to bring you the latest resources and information on Zika.

We invite your submissions of Zika-related articles and research. Please submit suggestions to Kaitlyn Borysiewicz, ARHP’s communication and education associate, at
