Stories from the Field
Micronesia Zika
Preventing the Further Spread of the Zika Virus

When Zika virus was reported in the state of Kosrae, one of four states within the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), the territory responded with a PHEP-funded mosquito control and elimination campaign. Campaign activities included an island-wide mosquito survey, communication efforts such as travel advisory brochures, radio programs, and posters, and mosquito spraying at the homes of all reported cases.
