The objective of this study is to describe the knowledge, attitudes and preventive practices regarding the infection by the Zika virus (ZIKV) among the population embarked on Portuguese Navy ships. We have performed a statistical analysis, a cross-sectional study that, besides allowing us to describe knowledge, attitudes and practices related to ZIKV infection, also let us to stratify the different groups under study: those who will navigate in endemic areas of Zika virus and navigators that have already traveled to endemic areas of ZIKV. The knowledge level about ZIKV reveals significant differences between the distinct questions and groups. The preliminary results obtained are in agreement with similar performed studies.
