Dr. Richard Silvera joins Bruce to discuss Monkeypox and Meningococcus and how the lessons learned from HIV outbreak response are applicable to these infectious diseases. They discuss the epidemiology of monkeypox and meningococcus disease and the nuances between sexually transmitted infections and those spread by intimate contact. With the public being more aware of the importance of vaccines, it’s important to understand how healthcare providers can best respond to outbreaks of monkeypox and meningococcus.
