The Zika virus outbreak and its growing correlation with microcephaly, and other birth defects and neurological disorders, has caused concern around the world and here in the United States. Zika has also been linked to Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare neurological condition leading to muscle weakness, permanent or temporary paralysis, and in some cases, death.
The Public Health Learning Network (PHLN) plays a key role in ensuring that the public health workforce has access to excellent training, tools, and resources to meet this challenge. And, the PHLN provides ‘just-in-time’ training to help those working in public health build key skills that directly applicable to Zika now, but that will also increase competence in responding to other emergencies.
The PHLN will continue to offer resources, like these just-in-time training, tools, and resources, to support your work in protecting the public from Zika virus and building enduring public health skills to respond to future emergencies.
