Management of Pregnant Women Exposed to Zika Virus: Resources for Providers

See ACOG’s Practice Advisory for official guidance on testing, screening, and managing pregnant women exposed to Zika virus.

Some jurisdictions (e.g. those at increased risk for local transmission) will continue to recommend Zika testing for asymptomatic pregnant women due to increased risks of transmission. Therefore, obstetric providers should check regularly with their state and local health departments for information on testing asymptomatic pregnant women without ongoing possible exposure. ACOG members should check their District and Section webpages for location-specific information.

Zika Care Connect

The CDC, in collaboration with March of Dimes, has established a specialty healthcare professional network, known as Zika Care Connect (ZCC), to facilitate access to services for the management of Zika. ZCC has a referral network of specialists who have self-enrolled and indicated that they are able to provide CDC-recommended clinical services for the management and care of patients with Zika. ZCC now has a searchable member directory that allows ZCC members to access the phone number, email, and address of other ZCC members. To find out more about how to be included in the ZCC Healthcare Professional Network or the Member Directory, contact the Program Director, Lindsay Rechtman (lrechtman@mcking.com/404-683-4394) or the Zika Care Connect HelpLine (helpline@zikcareconnect.org/ 844-677-0447).
