Zika Domain Launches on ORB

Today, mPowering Frontline Health Workers is announcing a new health area – Zika virus- on its ORB platform. ORB now hosts mobile-friendly materials to support training for frontline health workers on Zika.


The ORB platform connects trainers and frontline health workers to mobile-ready training resources. For content developers, ORB delivers content to a large audience of trainers, implementers, and health workers.


New Zika content on ORB covers tools and resources that health workers can use to learn new information, refresh their skills, and counsel patients who have suspected or confirmed cases of Zika. Some examples of content on ORB include:



We will continue to add to the Zika domain as new materials become available. If you have Zika-related training materials to share on ORB, please visit health-orb.org and click on ‘add resource’ for submission guidelines and instructions.

Content review for these materials was provided by the USAID Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP); and content was identified from mPowering’s call for content, as well as MCSP’s Zika Landscape Analysis.
