PODCAST | STDs, HIV, Mosquitoes, and Zika

Concluding our exploration of the Zika virus, this podcast examines different strategies and polices learned from other infectious diseases to address a potential Zika epidemic. Drs. Beth Linas, Claire Schulkey and Shobhana Gupta interview three experts concerning Zika transmission and vector control to uncover lessons learned from STD (sexually transmitted disease) prevention, the spread of HIV from mother to child, and mosquito control techniques. We welcome guest perspectives from Dr. Indira Mysorekar, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Dr. Koen Van Rompay, UC Davis National Primate Research Center, and current STPF fellow Dr. Dilip Venugopal.
