Programmatic Implications of Zika-Related Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices

This suite of Zika-Related Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices programmatic research briefs (available in English and Spanish) assesses various social and behavioral determinants related to Zika prevention in the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

The surveys provided key insights for implementers that supported an evidence-based approach for social and behavior change (SBC) programming directed toward increasing Zika prevention behaviors at the household and community level, particularly those behaviors with the greatest potential to reduce Zika transmission and minimize negative pregnancy outcomes.

These programmatic research briefs describe work led by Tulane University under Breakthrough RESEARCH in collaboration with Tropical Medicine and Global Health Institute of the Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE, Dominican Republic) and TEPHINET (El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras).
