The USAID-supported Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC) project implemented a package of interventions in six countries to strengthen mpox outbreak prevention and response through risk communication, community engagement, and health care worker training. The webinar featured an overview of USAID’s response to the global mpox outbreak, and panelists discussed successes of the interventions in Jamaica, Guatemala, and Benin. Presenters also reflected on lessons learned for responding to future outbreaks of mpox and other diseases.
