Zika: Working Together as Specialists and a Society to End an Outbreak
As infectious diseases specialists, we must be prepared to answer questions from our patients and the public about what is known about the Zika virus, but also be aware of what is being done domestically and globally to prevent its spread. ID specialists around the world are working day and night to find answers to many critical questions surrounding this disease while at the same time working on the development of a vaccine. Meanwhile, IDSA is also working to address the necessary public health policy response to the outbreak.
