Your Go-To Summer Resources

CDC shared the following message to their prevention partners regarding HIV, mpox, STI and other health resources for organizers of LGBTQIA+ summer events.

Dear Partners in Prevention:

With the warmer months approaching, many are looking forward to events that celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community. As health departments, prevention service providers, and community-based organizations, this gives you an opportunity to share important messages about testing, prevention, and treatment of health conditions that disproportionately impact LGBTQIA+ people.

Without renewed prevention efforts, including vaccination, we are at risk for a resurgence of mpox. This possibility is a particular concern as we approach spring and summer with planned gatherings that may have high potential for skin-to-skin contact or that are associated with increased sexual activity. In fact, a slight increase in cases of mpox has already been reported to CDC.

You can find a wealth of resources to help you and your event attendees at our Get Healthy and Ready for Summer 2023 website.
