Mpox Resource Center

In light of the recent cases of mpox in the U.S., the National Coalition for LGBTQ Health has curated a library of evidence-based materials in multiple formats about mpox. Geared to clinicians, researchers, and community members, the resources provide information about mpox virus transmission, prevention, testing, and treatment.

Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are tracking multiple cases of monkeypox that have been reported in several countries that don’t normally report mpox, including the United States.

It’s not clear how the people were exposed to mpox, but early data suggest that gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men make up a high number of cases. However, anyone who has been in close contact with someone who has mpox is at risk. CDC is urging healthcare providers in the U.S. to be alert for patients who have rash illnesses consistent with mpox, regardless of whether they have travel or specific risk factors for mypox and regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

CDC is working with state and local health officials to identify people who may have been in contact with individuals who have tested positive for mpox, so they can monitor their health.
