Men, Women In Zika-Affected Nations Should Be Fully Informed About Reproductive Options, WHO Official Says

STAT: WHO seeks to clarify: It’s not suggesting pregnancy delays in Zika regions
“…William Perea, the WHO official who is coordinating global health guidance on the Zika outbreak, told STAT on Friday that the agency is not trying to push people in Zika-affected countries towards any one choice regarding pregnancy. Instead, he said, the WHO wanted to make it clear that women and men living in places where the virus is spreading should be fully informed about all of their options and the risks they entail…” (Branswell, 6/10).
