Zika virus is spreading


The Zika virus is spreading quickly through out Latin America and the Caribbean. The World Health Organization is estimating up to four million cases over the next year.

In a region where many women have limited or no access to birth control and 6 countries ban abortion under all circumstances, the stakes are high. Advocates and health providers are concerned women might turn to life-threatening back-alley abortion procedures out of desperation to avoid the devastating birth defects associated with the virus.

Make your emergency gift today to help CFPA and our local partners empower women with the family planning resources and quality, non-judgmental care they need to make empowered, informed choices during this crisis.
