Strengthening Health Services in the Context of Zika in Jamaica

In early 2018, ASSIST partnered with the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Jamaica to identify and address needs for strengthening Zika-related care and support services for infants and young children affected by Zika and their families. ASSIST activities will support the provision of care and support services for infants born with the Congenital Syndrome Associated with Zika Virus Infection (CSAZ), psychosocial support to pregnant women who might be affected by Zika as well as to families of infants who might be or might have been potentially affected by Zika, neuro-developmental surveillance of infants and young children in well-baby clinics and, as needed, their referrals to care and support services in accordance with MOH guidelines.
