The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention developed a Zika Action Day Toolkit to help guide health departments and other organizations, including community-based organizations, interested in holding a Zika community engagement event. Community engagement to reduce mosquito populations and protect against mosquito bites can help efforts to slow the spread of Zika virus infections (Zika) and other diseases spread by mosquitoes. Holding a successful community action event can inform and educate communities about Zika prevention behaviors, provide trustworthy and accurate information about Zika virus, and offer the necessary tools and resources for taking action to prevent mosquito-borne infections.
