Monkeypox Information & Resources

The Monkeypox Virus is endemic in New York City. We have created this public health campaign to aggregate information from official governmental and community-based organizations that is essential for New Yorkers to know about the virus.


While New Yorkers should not be alarmed, everyone should stay informed about the monkeypox virus. This means understanding the symptoms, how it spreads, and what to do if you are exposed.


Monkeypox is a rare, viral infection that does not usually cause serious illness. However, it can result in hospitalization or death. That's why health officials in New York, the U.S., and around the world are monitoring cases of monkeypox in areas that do not usually report monkeypox infections, including in New York State.


Anyone can get and spread monkeypox. The current cases are primarily spreading among social networks of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men. If you have multiple or anonymous sex partners, your likelihood of exposure is high.


If you have a new or unexpected rash or sores, contact a health-care provider.


HIV PEP & PrEP Access

Pre-exposure prophylaxis (or PrEP) is medicine taken to prevent getting HIV. PrEP is highly effective for preventing HIV when taken as prescribed. Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) is the use of antiretroviral drugs after a single high-risk event to stop HIV seroconversion. PEP must be started as soon as possible to be effective—and always within 72 hours of a possible exposure. The following organizations provide access to PrEp and/or PEP. Also, your primary care physician may be able to get you started on the program as well.
