Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The 2022 Mpox outbreak saw community organisations and sexual health services rise to the challenge of rapidly responding to a public health emergency. Nevertheless, the experience showed that successfully responding to an outbreak is often dependent on preparedness, planning, and existing infrastructure, and success in future outbreaks and scenarios may depend on this work being undertaken now. This report sets out key findings about the successes and challenges in the response to Mpox in the UK and internationally and makes research based policy recommendations for future similar contexts.
