Zika is a mosquito-borne viral infection that is generally not life-threatening, although evidence suggests it may be responsible for microcephaly (birth defects), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and possibly other conditions. These modules provide information for grassroots audiences, health care professionals and for pregnant women. Zika has no vaccines, special treatments, or cures, so prevention is the key to addressing this illness.
