How ASPPH Member Institutions are Responding to Monkeypox

Monkeypox, an infectious disease related to smallpox, has become a rising global outbreak and was classified by the WHO late last month as an international public health emergency. Yesterday, President Biden declared Monkeypox an emergency in the U.S. — a move that gives U.S. officials more flexibility to tackle the virus’ spread.

As we’ve done during the worldwide Covid pandemic, our 137 schools and programs of public health have been responding to this public health emergency. Below are a few themes of our members’ efforts in this area.

  • Explaining how the Monkeypox virus compares to other infections and rash illnesses
  • Providing FAQs, information on the signs of infection, and transmission data
  • Information on how the disease spreads, as well as treatments and vaccine facts
