You may have heard of Mpox, a kind of viral illness that people sometimes call “monkeypox.” Since 2022, there have been more cases of Mpox. Self-advocates need to know the basics about this illness and how to protect ourselves.
Our toolkit “What do I need to know about Mpox?” can help you learn more about Mpox virus. It answers questions like:
- What is Mpox? What are the signs of Mpox?
- How can I protect myself from getting Mpox?
- What should I do if I get Mpox?
“What do I need to know about Mpox?” is available as a fact sheet in plain language and Easy Read.
There is also a video!
Thank you to our focus group editors for their work on our Mpox resources.
