More ZIKV resources

More good Zika resources have been published this month.  There is now a very helpful algorithm to help advise pregnant women, those planning pregnancy and their partners.  I think it would be really helpful to print off the poster below so you have it to hand in your travel consultation.  Click on the image.  There's also some great information on the risk assessment page see here.

NaTHNaC are now also using maps courtesy of the Travelers’ Health Branch, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a number of countries with active ZIKV transmission to show areas above 2,000m - see here. I've put an example for Mexico below taken from the 'other risks' page for this country on TravelHealthPro - see here
