Addressing Zika in Puerto Rico is our social responsibility
Impactivo is a social enterprise that specializes in the field of childhood and education, health and health care, and philanthropy. In order to meet our objectives, we produce solutions that translate into research and public policy in action. That is why we intend to bring together a diverse community that wants to contribute to the creation of solutions to reduce the Zika in Puerto Rico.
We are a multidisciplinary group that seeks to gather the knowledge acquired by the efforts of different organizations in order to expand networks and establish research communities. We want to get communities interested in Zika to commit to patient-centered research.
Our aim is to discover what questions of interest to patients have yet to be answered about Zika, its impact on maternal and child health, and what recommendations patients have to improve the responses of researchers and clinicians. Patient-centered research ensures that researchers focus on investigating the interests and concerns of the community. The core areas are: pregnant women, vector control, aspects of Zika sexual transmission, community participation, and infants and children.
