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.
