The overall objectives of ZIKAlliance are to assess the impact of Zika virus infection on pregnant women and fetuses as well as to decipher the natural history of Zika virus infection in humans and their environment in the context of other circulating arboviruses. The multidisciplinary ZIKAlliance project will link large observational multicentre cohort studies with basic scientific research to address the above questions, (i) with longstanding shared work experience on arboviral diseases in basic, clinical and applied sciences; (ii) with an established network of clinical cohorts currently studying Dengue Fever in Latin America & the Caribbean; (iii) guided by the principles of One Health approach to respond to the challenges of vector‐borne epidemics.
