Gender Issues Influencing Zika Response in Paraguay

There are various programs that promote practices to prevent vector-borne and sexually-transmitted Zika and link families with children affected by Zika to the care they need. However, to respond to these needs most effectively, and to design initiatives that will best help families protect themselves from Zika, Zika response programs will need to integrate gender-sensitive interventions that address the variances of needs and behaviors of women, men, boys, and girls. This desk review looks at several key Zika prevention and response areas where gender plays a role in Paraguay and provides insights and initial recommendations based on the findings.
