Monkeypox

The monkeypox virus (MPX) mainly occurs in countries in West and Central Africa. Since the beginning of May 2022, cases of monkeypox have also been identified in several countries (within the EU and beyond). Infections mainly occur in men who have sexual contacts with men (MSM), but not exclusively.

The epidemiological situation in Belgium is closely monitored.

More information for health professionals is available in Dutch and French.
