Together, We Can Stop Zika

Together, We Can Stop Zika

We are learning more every day about Zika virus. What we are discovering is disturbing, particularly for pregnant women. We know it causes debilitating birth defects like microcephaly in unborn babies. But there is still a lot we don’t know. To respond to this crisis, CDC is operating at its highest level of emergency response.

“Never before have we had a mosquito-borne infection that can cause serious birth defects on a large scale. There is an urgent need to learn more and do more—and all of us have a role to play.” – CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden

Together, we must combat the unknowns surrounding Zika to prevent it from spreading. The CDC Foundation has stepped in to fill the gaps and provide immediate resources for CDC. Now we need your help. We urge you to join the CDC Foundation in fighting the Zika virus at home and abroad. We are grateful for partners and individuals who have already provided crucial support, but there is more funding needed from donors like you.

Help CDC Meet Urgent Needs for Women and Children

As Zika evolves and spreads, the CDC Foundation is striving to help CDC meet urgent needs that require philanthropic and private sector support to address gaps in government funding that may not be available or quickly accessible for the Zika response. Your gift will help support priorities such as:

  • Building capacity and strengthening diagnostic capabilities around insecticide-resistance and developing innovative approaches to advance vector/mosquito control.
     
  • Providing a full range of reversible contraception to women wanting to delay or avoid pregnancy during the Zika outbreak through ongoing support to the Zika Contraception Access Network.
     
  • Responding to emerging needs as they arise with swift, timely support.

The CDC Foundation’s rapid response funds enable CDC to respond immediately to changing and unpredictable circumstances and needs. In the past, these funds provided critical support for CDC in response to many crisis situations, including the West Africa Ebola response, Haiti earthquake, Southern Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina.

Now, we ask you to join with us to protect people who are at most risk for Zika.Your gift is needed to help CDC keep us all healthy, safe and secure.
