Sciensano & Monkeypox

Last updated on 24-8-2023 by Lieke Vervoort

Sciensano is the leading scientific institution in the epidemiology of infectious diseases. We describe the epidemic’s evolution and assess its impact on the health of the Belgian population. 

Monitoring the epidemiological situation and reporting to Europe

The service Epidemiology of infectious diseases monitors the epidemiological situation of monkeypox in Belgium. To do so, Sciensano relies on information from the regional health services. Sciensano reports these data to the European Center for Disease Control (ECDC). Our scientists analyse and interpret these data to support decision-making.
