MONKEY POX and SEX WORK



Aotearoa now has its first cases of monkeypox, and here is what we need to know.


Monkeypox is more easily spread during sex due to skin-to-skin contact, which puts our
community at higher risk of transmission.


Similar to covid, avoid close contact with people with flu-like symptoms. Also avoid close contact if someone has a rash. We advise continuing to screen clients for flu-like symptoms and also rashes, as well as recent overseas travel.

Monkeypox is transmitted when there is contact with lesions or scabs, through close or prolonged skin contact, contact with bedding or towels, and also in respiratory droplets. 

Symptoms may include headaches, fatigue, fever, rash or lesions or swollen glands. You can read more about Monkeypox here https://www.health.govt.nz/our-work/diseases-and-conditions/monkeypox-mpx

If you have flu like symptoms and/or a rash or chicken pox type lesions appear - seek medical advice.

NZPC has confidential clinics for SWers in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Call us if you have any concerns or email [email protected]

Or contact your local sexual health service, GP, or call Healthline on 0800 611 116.
