In February 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Zika virus a ?public health emergency of international concern.? WHO defines such a public health emergency (1) to constitute a public health risk to other states through the international spread of disease, and (2) to potentially require a coordinated international response. This definition implies a situation that is serious, unusual, or unexpected; carries implications for public health beyond the affected state?s national border; and may require immediate international action.
