WHO Global health emergency alert: zika virus
IFFS Member Societies and Global Reproductive Healthcare Practitioners should take note:
The Zika virus outbreak has been declared a global health emergency by WHO. Its risk profile has changed from a mild threat to one with serious consequences. There is now scientific consensus that Zika virus is a cause of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Given the implications of Zika infection in reproductive health the IFFS has a key role in disseminating information to its stakeholders to support the global effort in minimizing the risk of this infection.
