  • TitleWhy Brazil’s Zika virus requires a political treatment
    Media name/outletThe Conversation
    Country/TerritoryUnited Kingdom
    DescriptionThe way in which Zika is framed in the media shapes public opinion in Brazilian society about who is to blame for the outbreak and who is responsible for fixing it. Unfortunately, this approach continues to focus on the cure rather than prevention – and fails to think critically about the politics of the disease
