Algorithm for public health management of cases under investigation for Zika virus infection
The aim of this algorithm is to determine when a person who has been exposed to Zika virus needs to be tested and notified, and when vector control measures should be considered around a case.
Laboratory tests for Zika virus diagnostic
Laboratories should receive clinical and epidemiological information for establishing their investigation strategy, including date of onset of illness, travel history (date and locations), past flaviviral immunisation records and pregnancy status.
Algorithm for Ebola virus disease contact management
The algorithm describes the possible actions for public health authorities for monitoring of contacts of Ebola virus disease case and the actions to take in the event of a contact developing symptoms.
Algorithm for initial assessment and management of patients for Ebola virus disease
This algorithm demonstrates the possible actions that public health authorities can take for assessing and managing patients of Ebola virus disease.
Algorithm for laboratory diagnosis of Ebola virus disease
The algorithm for detection of Ebola virus nucleic acid in a clinical specimen indicates the steps required to consider a case as laboratory confirmed, as per laboratory criteria.
Treatment and vaccines for Ebola virus disease
In absence of vaccines to protect against Ebola virus disease (EVD) or specific drug for treatment in 2014, potential new Ebola therapies and vaccines were reviewed during four WHO meetings organised with relevant stakeholders from early September 2014 onwards.
