latest data reveals how the virus has affected women and non-binary people

Since May 2022, a global outbreak of human monkeypox infections has been reported in over 78,000 people. So far, infections have overwhelmingly occurred in sexually active men who have sex with men.

Given the vast majority of infections have occurred in gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men, most of the data we have on the global impact of monkeypox and how it transmits has been in this group. As such, we haven’t fully known how many cases of monkeypox were affecting women or non-binary people assigned female at birth – and how it’s being passed on in these groups. This is what our latest research has uncovered.
