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
- 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.
