K4Health, along with USAID and the Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3), is pleased to announce the Zika Communication Network (ZCN) – to support communities currently affected—and those that will soon be affected—by Zika. ZCN connects 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.
Visit the ZCN regularly as they roll out new features and contribute to the collection of curated resources. http://www.zikacommunicationnetwork.org/upload-materials/?lang=en
