Mpox report online launch invitation - Knowing and evidencing Mpox

Dear all

Youre warmly invited to the launch event of our report Knowing and Evidencing Mpox: A Rapid Policy-Focused Study of Community Organising, Communication, and Vaccine Engagements. The launch event will be online on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, from 12 to 1pm (UK time).

The report explores the social dimensions and implications of Mpox responses, including the role of community organizing, social media, and health inequalities related to vaccination. It draws on interviews with over 50 clinicians, policymakers, activists, and people with lived experience of Mpox in the UK, US, and Germany. The event will feature key findings from the report, a guest presentation, and a Q&A with the team.

This report is the product of an ESRC urgency grant co-led by U. Edinburgh and UCL, with colleagues in U. Manchester, U. Bristol, UKHSA, and Johns Hopkins U.
