Purpose

The Network of the National Library of Medicine Region 6 offers funding to organizations to provide communities most at risk for monkeypox with high quality information about monkeypox. The award is intended to increase health equity through outreach and engagement.

Potential project ideas include:

  • A health department sends public health workers to LGBTQ bars and community centers to distribute and post flyers or printed information about monkeypox from MedlinePlus and/or CDC. Alternatively, the health department creates original flyers containing a QR code that links to monkeypox information online from CDC and/or MedlinePlus. Information covered might include prevention, safer sex practices, signs and symptoms, transmission, testing, treatment, and/or vaccines.
  • A library or community organization partners with a health department to offer flyers or printed information about monkeypox and the monkeypox vaccine at vaccine clinics. The flyers and information come from MedlinePlus and/or CDC.
  • Award recipient creates QR code stickers for condom packages. The QR code links to monkeypox information from MedlinePlus and/or CDC. Award recipient distributes stickered condom packages for focused disease prevention and educational awareness at LGBTQ bars, community centers, and health clinics.
  • A community organization, health department, or clinic creates short videos explaining what monkeypox is, how it does and doesn't spread, what to do if you have monkeypox, and what to expect with the monkeypox vaccine. The video is distributed via social media, along with links to more information about monkeypox from MedlinePlus and/or CDC.

Populations of focus include:

  • Racial and ethnic minority populations
  • Sexual and gender minority populations
  • Populations reported below the federal poverty level
  • Populations with limited access to medical care
  • Populations with physical and/or mental disabilities
  • Soldiers, veterans, and military families
  • Rural populations
