Zika project coming
As part of ongoing efforts in the Caribbean region to combat the spread of the zika virus, the United States Government is supporting the opening of a Barbados-based Regional Headquarters for the Zika AIRS Project (ZAP).
The United States Agency for International Development (Usaid)-supported initiative focuses on vector control to strengthen the region’s capacity to eliminate mosquito populations, namely the aedes aegypti that transmits the zika virus and other mosquito borne illnesses.
The project is being implemented in Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Dominica, Guyana, St Kitts and Nevis, and St Vincent and the Grenadines as part of a larger zika initiative.
