Updated Interim Zika Clinical Guidance for Pregnant Women and Data on Contraceptive Use to Decrease Zika-affected Pregnancies

Overview

CDC’s top priority for the Zika response is to protect pregnant women and their fetuses from the adverse effects of Zika virus infection in pregnancy. As a result, CDC continues to evaluate all available evidence and update recommendations as new information becomes available. CDC has updated its interim guidance for U.S. healthcare providers caring for pregnant women with possible Zika virus exposure based on emerging evidence about laboratory testing for the diagnosis of Zika. A primary strategy to reduce Zika-related pregnancy complications is to prevent pregnancy among women who want to delay or avoid pregnancy. CDC published contraceptive use data for states where mosquito-borne transmission of Zika is possible.

During this COCA Call, clinicians will learn about the updated CDC interim guidance for caring for pregnant women with possible Zika virus exposure, and strategies for increasing access to contraceptive methods and services to minimize the number of pregnancies affected by Zika.
