- An overview of the Zika virus and pregnancy, including physical symptoms and long-term complications.
- Details on the purpose of the US Zika Pregnancy Registry, including information on structure and reporting requirements.
- Guidance for Tribes and health entities to voluntarily participate in the registry, including information for Tribal health services to efficiently care for Zika patients in healthcare settings.
- Information on the assurance of confidentiality.
Who should participate?
- Tribal health officials and employees who are striving to ensure preparedness in both the clinic and community to respond to questions regarding the implementation of the US Zika Pregnancy Registry.
- Tribal Leaders and community members.
- Individuals who oversee clinical operations or monitor disease reporting and surveillance.
- Family planning or OB/GYN service providers.
- Health education, promotion, and outreach staff.
Time will be allotted for participant questions for the NIHB and CDC presenters.
