As of March 16, 2016, the highest number of Zika virus disease cases in the United States and U.S. territories were reported from Puerto Rico. Increasing evidence links Zika virus infection during pregnancy to adverse pregnancy and birth outcomes. High rates of unintended and adolescent pregnancies in Puerto Rico suggest access to contraception might need to be improved in the context of this outbreak.
