Reaching the vulnerable without stigma
Editorial | |
As of June 30, there have been 5323 cases of monkeypox outside of endemic regions (west and central Africa). The cases have largely been centred in the USA and western Europe and most have been reported in men who have sex with men (MSM), but not all of them. This raises the question, how to provide health information to a population at risk (here MSM) without stigmatising them?
This Lancet editorial highlights the relationship between Monkeypox and stigma.
