The World Health Organization has deemed the mpox outbreak an unexpected international public health crisis that demands a coordinated response. The virus has spread to nearly 90 countries, with thousands of cases across the United States. While the designation of mpox as an outbreak means there has been a greater-than expected increase in cases, the disease is not as prevalent as a pandemic, like COVID-19.
NLP has created this collection of free resources for educators, students and the public to combat the attendant outbreak of mpox misinformation on social media and throughout online communities.
It features links to authoritative sources of health information, relevant news stories and tips and tools to help you navigate an information landscape rife with falsehoods. We will refresh the page when new information is available. Please follow us on social media for timely updates.
