Shownotes

As Monkeypox cases are rising and appearing in locations where it is not historically been endemic, Dr Abraham Udoudom, Senior Medical Doctor in Nigeria and Chris Van Straten, Global Health Advisor in Johannesburg discuss the diseases origins and implications.

Although Monkeypox has been around for over 50 years, the recent outbreak and the change in transmission has challenged locations where we have not seen the disease historically. Based on their experience with COVID-19 and other zoonic diseases, they discuss the future containment of Monkeypox and how critical public health measures are in reducing its impact on wider communities.
