The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recently launched the U.S. Zika Pregnancy Registry to understand more about pregnancy and infant outcomes following Zika virus infection during pregnancy. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) intends to collaborate with CDC on this registry. Health care providers are asked to identify any cases of pregnant women with laboratory evidence of Zika virus or any infants with suspected congenital Zika virus exposure. If you have identified a woman or infant meeting these criteria, please call DHS at 608-267-9003 or the CDC Zika Pregnancy Registry at 770-488-7100.
Additional information regarding the U.S. Zika Pregnancy Registry can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/zika/hc-providers/registry.html. Registry fact sheets designed specifically for obstetric health care providers, pediatric health care providers, pregnant women, and parents can be accessed using the links below and are also available in Spanish.
