It is estimated that about 40% of people diagnosed with mpox in the United States are also living with HIV. It is unclear if having HIV increases the likelihood of getting mpox infection, but those living with advanced or untreated HIV are at increased risk of severe mpox disease, if they get infected with this virus. Join us for a webinar to consider how to best to provide support and treatment for mpox to people living with HIV.
The event will include an overview of the management of mpox among people living with HIV, challenges faced in access to services and how to overcome these challenges. A panel discussion will follow with the opportunity to submit questions to experts on these topics.
This webinar is hosted by the NYC Pandemic Response Institute and PrEP4All. The event has now ended, you can watch a recording below.
