The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) has been working with federal and other national partners on what a comprehensive national Zika response would look like. As such, we have created a new series of webpages featuring up to date materials on the Zika virus and the potential responses.
The webpages can be found here, and include:
- Factsheets and educational materials
- Updates on advocacy activities with Congress to secure funding for Tribes for Zika
- Frequently asked questions
- Current news and updates
- Information on the Zika Pregnancy Registry
- Information on the prevention and response activities
Zika is a looming public health threat that needs to be taken seriously by ALL Tribes and Tribal leaders. Regardless of what area of the country in which the Tribe lies, Zika is transmitted by mosquitoes and through sexual contact. For these reasons, it creates risk for all of Indian Country. NIHB has created this series of webpages to serve as a hub of information and resources for Tribes and Tribal organizations. In that vein if there is information that you would like to see posted and shared, please e-mail Robert Foley.
NIHB will do our best to send out notifications when new information is posted, but please bookmark this page and plan on checking it regularly (especially during mosquito season this summer).
