A Two Plan Attack on the Zika Virus

The Community United For Health And Prevention (CUFHAP) has two subdivisions: IPOZIKAMDE — International Project of ZIKA Mosquito Disease Eradication and IPOZIKAVV — International Project of ZIKA Virus Vaccination.

We believe that Vaccination cannot be done without also eradicating the mosquito. With vaccination, humans will develop antibodies against the virus. But, it is still possible that the virus will mutate, become resistant to the vaccine and therefore become even more dangerous. The mosquito will fly and multiply.

If we do not act quickly to decrease the mosquito population, every nine months, the world will witness the birth of many new infants with microcephaly. The mosquitoes fly and bite other living species who could be carriers of the ZIKA virus. (At the present time, no one knows the carriers of the ZIKA virus) We do know, however, that the vector is the mosquitoes.

So we must kill as many mosquitoes as we can. By doing so, we not only decrease the incidence of the ZIKA virus infection but also we will decrease the incidence of other diseases transmitted by a mosquito bite such as malaria and.

Therefore CUFHAP will implement a dual program. by using IPOZIKAMDE and IPOZIKAVV. These two interventions need the support of the United States Government and that of other countries affected by the ZIKA virus infection. These governments will have to act quickly to work on decreasing mosquito populations at the same time as developing a vaccine.

Founder and executive Director on the Community United For Health And Prevention (CUFHAP), I am a trained physician with a master of Public Health, a Health care in developing countries certificate and an LPN. My goals are to develop strategies to partially decrease the population of the mosquitoes vector of the ZIKA virus in order to decrease the incidence of microcephaly among the children born from mothers infected by the ZIKA virus.By doing so,we will decrease the incidence of Guillain Barre Syndrome , encephalitis and other diseases caused by mosquito bite like malaria, arboviral meningo- encephalitis caused by multiple viral agents. These arboviral diseases are classified by geographic area WNV (Western Nile Virus), Eastern and Western equine encephalitis,La Crosse encephalitis, St Louis encephalitis. To reach these goals the Community United For Health And Prevention needs the support of the people and the governments.
