First identified in 1947, the Zika virus has recently received global attention following a devastating outbreak which spread across South America in 2015. This seminar focuses on the Brazilian experience of the Zika epidemic and the lessons that can be learned. Our speakers will consider the challenges to improve scientific and political coordination to enhance the right to health during future epidemic threats; the potential and pitfalls of community-centred responses to the Zika epidemic; and the need to improve social movements’ participation in science and policy-making process before and during public health emergencies.
