1. Overview

.

Since 2007 more than 62 countries and territories have reported transmission of Zika virus. This number is likely to increase to include other countries with Aedes mosquitoes and other potential competent vectors.

.

Increases in cases of congenital malformations such as microcephaly, and neurological syndromes such as Guillain-Barrsyndrome, have recently been associated with Zika virus outbreaks. New research has strengthened these associations; however more investigation is needed to establish causal relationships. Other potential causes are also being investigated.

.

This website will be regularly updated with advice to national authorities and health care practitioners on travel health issues related to Zika virus.

.

2. National authorities

.

In the context of Zika virus, countries are advised that:

.

There should be no general restrictions on travel or trade with countries, areas and/or territories with Zika virus transmission.

.

Standard WHO recommendations regarding vector control at airports should be implemented in keeping with the IHR (2005). Countries should consider the disinsection of aircraft.

.

With regard to surveillance, health workers and the health sector should be on alert specifically for Zika virus disease in travellers returning from affected countries. It is important that travellers and health care practitioners are informed on a range of issues before, during and after travel to areas with Zika virus transmission. Health authorities should:

.

Provide up-to-date advice to travellers on how to reduce the risk of becoming infected, including preventing mosquito bites and practicing safer sex. ?
Advise travellers from areas with ongoing Zika virus transmission to practice safer sex and not to donate blood for at least 1 month after return, to reduce the potential risk of onwards transmission.
Advise pregnant women not to travel to areas with ongoing Zika virus transmission.

.

Advise pregnant women whose sexual partners live in or travel to areas with ongoing or recent Zika virus transmission to ensure safe sexual practices or abstain from sex for the duration of their pregnancy.
Alert health care practitioners to the possibility of Zika virus infection in symptomatic travellers with a recent history of travel to areas of known, ongoing Zika virus transmission and areas at risk of transmission.
Provide health care practitioners with clear guidance on how to refer travellers with suspected Zika virus infection to appropriate management and testing.
