It Takes Two

Countries facing Zika outbreaks could drastically reduce the rate of infection by expanding reproductive health and family planning programs to include men, argue NIH researchers. Such programs have historically been geared almost exclusively toward women, they say.
 
The researchers recommend tailoring interventions to each specific society, depending on the roles men and women play. They also suggest testing both partners for Zika during a woman’s pregnancy and providing men with health education and involving them in contraceptive counseling sessions.
