Zika Coalition

The Zika Coalition is made up of organizations committed to the health and wellbeing of our nation’s children and families. Established in response to the rapid spread of Zika and microcephaly in South America, it promotes policies at the national level to prevent, mitigate, and address the spread of Zika virus and its health consequences, with a particular focus on preventing microcephaly and other birth defects.
