862. Monkeypox – Why Aren’t We Acting?

The World Health Organisation has called Monkeypox a ‘global health emergency.’ Yet, as our guests, Dr Ciara Conlon and Robbie Lawlor, both of Access to Medicines Ireland, outline it is not been treated as one.
They discuss the international inaction that is going to allow this virus to spread and the steps nationally and internationally needed to stop it. We also discuss the institutional homophobia that underpins much of the weak response to this virus and the discriminatory supports available when compared to the Covid-19 emergency.
