The first addresses Zika in Cadernos de Saúde Pública, discusses efforts by researchers, policymakers, and health professionals in the Unified Health System (SUS) to rapidly and consistently expand the knowledge base on the relationship between Zika virus infection during pregnancy and microcephaly. In this context, the editorial highlights the decision by the journal's Editorial Board to adopt a "fast track" system for reviewing and publishing articles on Zika in CSP.

The second, entitled Democracy and Collective Health.

This edition includes two Perspectives and one Brief Communication on Zika. The article Threats of retrocession in sexual and reproductive health policies in Brazil during the Zika epidemic discusses the setbacks written into Bill of Law 5.059/2013 in relation to the current Zika epidemic. According to the authors, "Brazil runs the risk of counteracting the measures needed to guarantee women's sexual and reproductive health..." (p. 3).

Meanwhile, the author of From Ebola to Zica: international emergencies and the securitization of global health argues that "only an efficient health system can guarantee continuity of care for persons affected by the crisis" (p. 3) and highlights the relevance of measures targeted to the social determinants of health.

The Brief Communication addresses the issue of microcephaly in the State of Pernambuco and its epidemiological characteristics and the assessment of diagnostic accuracy in cutoff points for reporting cases of microcephaly.

The April edition as a whole features the journal's traditional diversity.
