Urgent Letter To Govt

Joint Letter to Government - Urgent Call to Action on Monkeypox

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared Monkeypox (MPX) a Public Health Emergency of International Concern. MPX cases internationally have intensified into a crisis, particularly in Europe, with numbers rapidly increasing and overwhelming health systems.

Burnett Foundation Aotearoa, The New Zealand Sexual Health Society Inc. and more are calling for urgent Government action to prevent MPX endemicity in Aotearoa New Zealand. We still have a window of opportunity to act now and avoid the serious public health consequences of a large-scale MPX outbreak.
