Community Engagement Activity

United against Zika

Dr. Deborah Juarbe and Dr. Mildred Vera, investigators of the RCMI pilot Project “Risk Communication and Community Engagement Strategies to Enhance Behavior Change for Zika Virus Prevention and Control“, joined the Puerto Rico Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in training communities on the use of the new autocidal gravid ovitrap (AGO) mosquito trap. Mosquitoes are responsible for spreading many viruses that can make people sick, including dengue, Zika, chikungunya, and more. This trap is inexpensive, simple-to-assemble, and easy-to-maintain and targets female mosquitoes looking for a place to lay eggs.
