The company will donate personal repellents, containing DEET, and spatial repellents, such as mosquito coils, for distribution in regions where the Zika virus is most prevalent. This initial donation to the IFRC is part of SC Johnson’s commitment to donate at least US $15 million US dollars over the next year to help protect families from mosquitoes that may carry harmful mosquito-borne viruses such as Zika, dengue and chikungunya.

"Latin America and the Caribbean are currently the most vulnerable areas in the world with respect to the Zika virus. Families at risk in these regions depend on organizations like the Red Cross and Red Crescent to ensure that they have protection against mosquitoes that may carry Zika," said Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson.

The IFRC, through its local Red Cross societies, will distribute SC Johnson’s donation of OFF! personal repellent and Autan coils to vulnerable communities in Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Panama and Peru.
