The Zika virus is a newly emerging threat to women's reproductive health that is receiving increasing international and domestic attention. This virus can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus and cause microcephaly as well as other severe brain anomalies, and has also been linked to problems such as defects of the eye and pregnancy loss. Zika is transmitted both through the bites of Aedes species mosquitoes and through sex with a person who has been infected with Zika, and the virus has been circulating in South and Central America and the Caribbean (including Puerto Rico) since 2015. The first case of mosquito-borne transmission in the United States occurred in June 2016.
