Monkeypox, a rare pox virus typically carried by rodents in Central and Western Africa, has been making international headlines recently because of unusual outbreaks Europe, North America, Israel, and Australia.

Media coverage of this outbreak has tied the majority of cases to gay and bisexual men and other men who have sex with men (MSM). This reporting has caused concern among the LGBTQIA+ community, both globally and here in Boston.

To ensure that our community has accurate information about monkeypox – its symptoms, how it’s spread, and when to seek medical care – Fenway Health has created this page.
