Welcome to the Zika Communication Network (ZCN)—your reliable one-stop shop for Zika prevention and preparedness materials.
ZCN strives to support communities currently affected—and those that will soon be affected—by Zika by connecting responders with state-of-the-art knowledge and tools that they can readily use or adapt to their particular context and response plan. ZCN strives to contribute to the following goals:
- Empower communities to tackle the Zika epidemic.
- Provide health care workers with quality counseling and training materials.
- Equip policymakers and other advocates with communication materials and policy and preparedness guidelines to curb the spread of Zika and promote prevention.
How ZCN Works
ZCN curates essential, evidence-based tools and resources to help health and development professionals minimize the spread of Zika and related negative pregnancy outcomes using four key strategies:
- Social and behavior change communication (SBCC)
- Vector control
- Delivery of maternal and child health and family planning services
- Research and development
Visitors can search ZCN’s materials by resource type, topic, audience, language, country, or publication source, or browse our Featured Resources.
For background information on what is Zika, please see WHO’s Fact Sheet.
In addition to its collection of tools and resources, ZCN also curates the latest news and updates related to the Zika response.
Submit Your Materials
ZCN’s collection of materials is continually updated. Do you have a resource or tool to share with the global Zika response community? We encourage you to submit your materials to the ZCN.
All submissions will be reviewed for accuracy and relevance; not all will necessarily be published to the site. Please visit the Upload Resources for the resource inclusion criteria.
The Zika Communication Network is a collaborative effort of all implementing partners working on the interagency Zika Response Initiative.
