Obstetrics and Gynaecology (East Africa)
Prevention of unintended pregnancy is a primary strategy to reduce adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes related to Zika virus infection. Infection during pregnancy, either through a mosquito bite or sex with an infected partner, increases the risk of the child developing congenital microcephaly and other fetal brain abnormalities, resulting in the birth of a child with severe disabilities that will necessitate lifelong care.1,2
