Zika virus is associated with severe neurological complications, particularly congenital Zika virus syndrome and Guillain Barré syndrome. The associated complications have a marked impact on the people affected and their communities, including both physical and mental health.
WHO has, therefore, developed and launched a Toolkit for the care and support of people affected by complications associated with Zika virus. This toolkit will serve as a model guide, with the goal of enhancing country preparedness for Zika virus outbreaks.
