Tech Tip: Download WHO app to get latest information on Zika
from the AAP Division of Quality
Zika virus remains a concern, and health care professionals need to stay up-to-date
on new research, guidelines, diagnosis and treatment.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed an application that allows health
care workers and the general public (ages 17 and older) to access the latest information
on Zika virus.
The WHO Zika App provides general information about Zika, microcephaly and Guillain-Barré
syndrome. Health care professionals also can download WHO’s technical guidance and
other resources, monitor Zika-related research and development, access training materials
and situation reports, and follow the WHO’s response to Zika.
If you would like to share a firsthand experience using technology, such as software,
program, app, widget, etc., to improve patient care or practice management, email
