THE ZIKA VIRUS INFECTION AND GLAUCOMA

WE ALREADY KNEW THAT THE ZIKA VIRUS COULD CROSS THE PLACENTAL BARRIER BECAUSE THE ZIKA VIRUS CAUSES A DEVASTATING BIRTH DEFECT SEEN IN THE CONGENITAL ZIKA SYNDROME. THE SCIENTISTS IN BRAZIL AND AT YALE UNIVERSITY JUSTED PROVED IT. THIS OPEN A NEW AREA OF EPIDEMIOLOGICAL RESEARCH STUDY SUCH AS PROSPECTIVE AND RETROSPECTIVE COHORT STUDY OF CHILDREN WITH GLAUCOMA BORN FROM HEALTHY MOTHERS VERSUS CHILDREN WITH GLAUCOMA BORN FROM MOTHERS INFECTED BY THE ZIKA VIRUS. THIS WILL HELP US STUDY OVERTIME AND IN DETAIL THE INCIDENCE OF GLAUCOMA. PLEASE FOLLOW US AT Facebook, Google and WordPress or visit at https://cufhap.com or https://cufhap.wordpress.com

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.
