Scope of ZikAction

Led by PENTA, the ZIKAction research consortium brings together 14 partners across South and Central America, the Caribbean and Europe with the complementary goals of 1) developing a multidisciplinary multinational ready-to-act network capable of rapidly addressing any maternal and paediatric research need arising from (re-)emerging infectious diseases including Zika virus and 2) conducting an interdisciplinary programme of research studies within this network to address key knowledge gaps relating to ZIKV epidemiology, natural history and pathogenesis, with a particular emphasis on maternal and child health.


ZIKAction collaborates on key activities with two other EC funded consortia (ZikaPLAN and ZIKAlliance).
