Information About Monkeypox for the Community 

Monkeypox Health Information

On June 2, 2022, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health announced the first case of monkeypox in Philadelphia. On July 23, the World Health Organization declared monkeypox a “public health emergency of international concern.” Our goal is to provide information about monkeypox without contributing to stigma. Monkeypox can affect anyone, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.

On November 28, 2022 The World Health Organization (WHO) renamed ‘monkeypox’ to ‘mpox’ – and the US Department of Health and Human Services agreed it will use the new name going forward “to avoid stigma around the disease and further promote access to quality care

 Mpox Vaccine Eligibility

Mpox vaccine availability has greatly improved: Anyone who feels they are at risk for acquiring monkeypox is now eligible for vaccination.

If you received your first dose already, get your second dose.

FIGHT outreach will continue to those who are most at risk, including gay, bisexual, transgender, other men who have sex with men, or non-binary persons who meet the following criteria:

  • Have had multiple or anonymous sex partners in the past 14 days.
  • Have had any newly diagnosed STI in the past 12 months, including gonorrhea, chlamydia, early syphilis, or HIV.
  • Have recently attended or plan to attend any venue where anonymous sex or sex with multiple partners will occur (e.g. saunas, bathhouse, sex clubs, sex parties).
  • Have met recent partners or plan to meet new partners through social media platforms (such as Grindr, Tinder or Scruff), or at clubs, raves, sex parties, saunas).

In addition, anyone with known close contact (skin-to-skin) with someone with Mpox in the past 14 days should be vaccinated immediately.

 Accessing a Monkeypox Vaccine

 For FIGHT patients who are at risk of exposure to mpox:

  • Call your Philadelphia FIGHT health center and ask to get the monkeypox vaccine. Specify if it’s your first or second shot. Please wait 4 weeks until after any COVID vaccine.

For FIGHT patients who have any sick symptoms or have been exposed to mpox:

For community members who are not FIGHT patients:

  • Call the Philadelphia Department of Public Health at (215) 685-5488 to talk to health department representative about a recent exposure or getting a vaccine.

Recording of FIGHT’s Community Conversation on Monkeypox

This video is a recording of Philadelphia FIGHT and JD Evans Solutions’ Community Conversation on Monkeypox, held on Wednesday, August 3, 2022. Please note, there are images in this recording that are graphic in nature and shared for the sole purpose of public health education.


Monkeypox is a disease caused by a virus that is usually found in Central and West Africa. Monkeypox was first discovered in laboratory monkeys in 1958. Monkeypox was reported in humans for the first time in 1970. It is called monkeypox because the disease was first discovered in monkeys. The World Health Organization is working to change the name of the disease to make it less stigmatizing.

In May 2022, about 200 cases of monkeypox were reported in Europe, North America, Israel, and Australia. Since then, more cases have been identified around the world, including in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. No one is known to have died in the current outbreak.

CDC Monkeypox Outbreak Global Map

To date, 96% of all cases in the United States have been among men who have sex with men. Itis critical to note that monkeypox can affect anyone, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, and despite a recent increase in cases, it is still considered a very rare infection Widespread transmission is currently considered very unlikely. Nevertheless, there is widespread concern among the LGBTQIA+ community both globally and here in Philadelphia, focused on the ways the community can educate and protect itself.

Our biggest concern with monkeypox is that it will spread among vulnerable communities with little access to and/or trust in the public health system. To date, about 96% of all monkeypox cases in the United States have been among men who have sex with men. These men have a median age of 36. For people living with undetectable and well-managed HIV, it seems unlikely that monkeypox will cause more severe disease than it does in people not living with HIV. For people who engage in in-person sex work and survival sex, there is increased concern, as monkeypox is easily spread by close, skin-to-skin contact.

Lesions, headaches, debilitating pain: Gay men with monkeypox share their stories | July 6

Symptoms usually start a week or two after exposure to someone with monkeypox. It sometimes starts with symptoms that might feel like the flu—fever, headache, body and backache, swollen lymph nodes, and chills—but some people do not experience these flu-like symptoms, at all. In the weeks after exposure, a rash resembling bumps or blisters develops. The rash can be seen anywhere on the body including the face, mouth, hands, genitals, or anus. This rash can last up to two to four weeks.

Image Examples of Monkeypox Blisters

Monkeypox is often spread through:

  • Close, personal, skin-to-skin contact
  • Direct contact with monkeypox rash, sores, or scabs
  • Oral, anal, and vaginal sex
  • Hugging, massage, and mutual masturbation
  • Dancing and clubbing with prolonged skin-to-skin contact

Monkeypox can also sometimes spread by:

  • Contact with objects, fabrics (clothing, bedding, or towels), and surfaces that have been used by someone with monkeypox
  • Through respiratory droplets or oral fluids from a person with monkeypox

People with monkeypox are most contagious and can infect other people while they have a rash with bumps and blisters. It is possible someone is contagious before a rash develops. A person is contagious until after all the blisters have scabbed over, fallen off, and new skin has grown back. This usually takes 2-4 weeks after the rash first develops. People with a monkeypox rash should avoid close, skin-to-skin contact with people. People with monkeypox should avoid sharing bedding, towels, clothes, sex toys, and other objects until their rash is healed.

The best way to avoid getting monkeypox is to avoid close, skin-to-skin contact with people of unknown health status or who actively have monkeypox. You may choose to limit physical intimacy with sexual partners whose health status and recent travel history are unknown to you. We understand this is not possible for everyone. You may also choose to ask new sexual partners about whether they have any of the early symptoms of monkeypox, such as fevers, swollen glands, body aches, or a rash. Try to avoid contact with any bumps or blisters on a person’s skin or near their genitals and anus, if possible.

If you know someone with monkeypox, avoid close, prolonged, physical contact and touching things they have touched. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water and use hand sanitizer.

If you are a Philadelphia FIGHT Community Health Centers patient and are experiencing symptoms consistent with monkeypox or think you were exposed to monkeypox, please call your health center and ask to speak to a nurse. Please do not come into the clinic before speaking to a nurse on the phone. If you are not a Philadelphia FIGHT Community Health Centers patient, please contact your healthcare provider and check the Philadelphia Department of Public Health website for information and resources.

PrEP Week 2022

FIGHT’s PrEP Team Presents PrEP Week 2022

Philadelphia FIGHT’s PrEP Team is excited to announce its annual PrEP Week, September 19 – 23. The awareness campaign will include mixers, webinars, and open PrEP walk-in clinic hours at John Bell Health Center and Y-HEP Adolescent and Young Adult Health Center.

PrEP Week is celebrated to bring increased awareness to the efficacy and availability of PrEP in Helping to End the HIV Epidemic. According to a recent proposal by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, in 2019, nearly 37,000 people in the U.S. were diagnosed with HIV. Black and Latinx/Hispanic individuals comprised 42 percent and 29 percent of new diagnoses, respectively. Every person living with HIV requires a lifetime of treatment at an estimated individual cost of about $501,000, with potential adverse effects that include liver toxicity, and insulin resistance. Fewer than 25 percent of individuals with PrEP indications according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines actually receive a PrEP prescription.

The PrEP Team will kick off their week-long program of events tonight at 5 pm at Globar on 13th & Walnut Street.

    World Hepatitis Day

    About five percent of Philadelphia residents have a past or current hepatitis A, B, or C infection. Many people are unaware of their infection.

    Hepatitis C (or HCV) is the most common blood-borne viral infection in the US. If left untreated it can lead to serious liver problems such as cirrhosis or cancer. There are as many as 5 million people in the United States living with Hepatitis C and most people who are living with HCV are unaware they are infected with the virus. According to the Philadelphia Department of Public health, an estimated 53,000 people in Philadelphia are living with HCV. Hepatitis C can be cured and the C a Difference program can assist those living with HCV to obtain subspecialty care. High-quality confidential testing, education, and linkage services are provided in our offices and at various sites throughout the city.

    Google Honors Kiyoshi Kuromiya, AIDS Activist & Founder of the Critical Path Project (1943 – 2000)

    Kiyoshi Kuromiya Google Doodle
    Google Doodle for Pride

    Kiyoshi means “to make clear”

    “Kiyoshi was a fighter for social justice all his life and he followed the trajectory of the movement in our generation through the civil rights and antiwar movements, gay liberation ethnic identity and ACT UP. Yet his work was uniquely propelled by one common theme: Kiyoshi believed that information is power- and therefore information should be freely available to anyone who needed it — and by freely I mean both uncensored and for free, and as much as anyone else he worked in the AIDS community for nearly 20 years to give people free, uncensored information – clear, accurate and comprehensive information… AND to give people the tools, the power, to use it.” 

    Jane Shull’s remarks at Kiyoshi’s Memorial Service, May 23, 2000

    More Information on Kiyoshi Kuromiya

    “I was a born felon. I was born in a U.S. concentration camp in Heart Mountain, Wyoming, along with 120,000 other Japanese Americans. And not because of any crime, but because of race.”

    In a 1994 Philadelphia Inquirer profile, the paper described him as “the city’s most knowledgeable layman about HIV.”

    A personal assistant to the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., he was also one of the founders of Gay Liberation Front/Philadelphia and served as an openly gay delegate to the Black Panther Convention that endorsed the gay liberation struggle. He was involved with ACT-UP/Philadelphia; PWA empowerment; We The People Living with HIV/AIDS; national and international research advocacy; and loving and compassionate mentorship and care for hundreds of people living with HIV.

    Notice of Potential Data Event

    On November 30, 2021, Philadelphia FIGHT was the victim of a criminal cyberattack that may impact the confidentiality and privacy of patient information.  As soon as we discovered this attack, we disconnected our network from the Internet, stopping the criminal attack, launched an investigation into the nature and scope of the event with the assistance of third-party forensic computer forensics specialists, and reported the crime to law enforcement.  We also confirmed, based on available evidence, that this attack did not impact our electronic medical records or other clinical systems.   

    On January 13, 2022, we learned through our continuing investigation that certain non-clinical systems within our network were accessed by the criminal actor, and later determined that those systems contained legally protected patient information. We cannot confirm that any sensitive information was accessed or taken by the criminal actor, and we are unaware to date of any publication or fraudulent misuse of information related to this event; however, we are providing notice of this event because legally protected information was located on the impacted non-clinical systems.  This information includes names, dates of birth, social security numbers, medical diagnosis, treatment information, and health insurance information, and we are working to identify and send individual letters to any individual whose legally protected information may have been impacted.  

    We have mailed letters to impacted individuals. If you received a letter and you have questions, please call Philadelphia FIGHT 215-985-4448.

    We deeply regret any inconvenience or concern this event may cause our patients. We are and have always been committed to patient privacy and confidentiality. We are developing and implementing a  review and enhancement of our security protocols to help prevent something like this from happening again.

    We encourage everyone to remain vigilant against incidents of identity theft and fraud by reviewing your account statements and monitoring your free credit reports for suspicious activity and error detection. You can also review the following information for additional steps you can take to protect information. 

    Monitor Your Accounts

    Under U.S. law, a consumer is entitled to one free credit report annually from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus, Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.  To order your free credit report, visit www.annualcreditreport.com or call toll-free, 1-877-322-8228.  You may also directly contact the three major credit reporting bureaus listed below to request a free copy of your credit report.

    Consumers have the right to place an initial or extended “fraud alert” on a credit file at no cost.  An initial fraud alert is a one-year alert that is placed on a consumer’s credit file.  Upon seeing a fraud alert display on a consumer’s credit file, a business is required to take steps to verify the consumer’s identity before extending new credit.  If you are a victim of identity theft, you are entitled to an extended fraud alert, which is a fraud alert lasting seven years.  Should you wish to place a fraud alert, please contact any one of the three major credit reporting bureaus listed below.

    As an alternative to a fraud alert, consumers have the right to place a “credit freeze” on a credit report, which will prohibit a credit bureau from releasing information in the credit report without the consumer’s express authorization.  The credit freeze is designed to prevent credit, loans, and services from being approved in your name without your consent.  However, you should be aware that using a credit freeze to take control over who gets access to the personal and financial information in your credit report may delay, interfere with, or prohibit the timely approval of any subsequent request or application you make regarding a new loan, credit, mortgage, or any other account involving the extension of credit.  Pursuant to federal law, you cannot be charged to place or lift a credit freeze on your credit report.  To request a security freeze, you will need to provide the following information:

    1. Full name (including middle initial, as well as Jr., Sr., II, III, etc.);
    2. Social Security number;
    3. Date of birth;
    4. Addresses for the prior two to five years;
    5. Proof of current address, such as a current utility bill or telephone bill;
    6. A legible photocopy of a government-issued identification card (state driver’s license or ID card, etc.); and
    7. A copy of either the police report, investigative report, or complaint to a law enforcement agency concerning identity theft if you are a victim of identity theft.

    Should you wish to place a credit freeze, please contact the three major credit reporting bureaus listed below:

    Additional Information

    You may further educate yourself regarding identity theft, fraud alerts, credit freezes, and the steps you can take to protect your personal information by contacting the consumer reporting bureaus, the Federal Trade Commission, or your state Attorney General.The Federal Trade Commission may be reached at: 600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20580; www.identitytheft.gov; 1-877-ID-THEFT (1-877-438-4338); and TTY: 1-866-653-4261.  The Federal Trade Commission also encourages those who discover that their information has been misused to file a complaint with them.  You can obtain further information on how to file such a complaint by way of the contact information listed above.  You have the right to file a police report if you ever experience identity theft or fraud.  Please note that in order to file a report with law enforcement for identity theft, you will likely need to provide some proof that you have been a victim.  Instances of known or suspected identity theft should also be reported to law enforcement and your state Attorney General.

    National Transgender HIV Testing Day

    April 18 is National Transgender HIV Testing Day.

    Today is National Transgender HIV Testing Day, a day to recognize the importance of routine HIV testing, status awareness, & continued focus on HIV prevention & treatment for transgender & nonbinary people.

    National Transgender HIV Testing Day

    The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested for HIV at least once as part of routine health care. People with certain risk factors should get tested at least once a year.

    According to a CDC report, 42% of transgender women surveyed in seven major US cities have HIV. Among respondents, 62% of Black or African American transgender women, 35% of Hispanic/Latina transgender women, and 17% of White transgender women have HIV. These findings highlight health disparities for transgender people that are exacerbated by transphobic discrimination, limited access to gender-affirming care, insufficient HIV testing, HIV stigma, and systemic racism.

    Philadelphia FIGHT Community Health Centers is committed to ensuring our transgender patients have access to high-quality, inclusive services that support optimal health outcomes and improve quality of life.

    Most New HIV diagnoses among transgender people were among Black/African American people.

    It is National LGBTQ+ Health Awareness Week

    This week is National LGBTQ+ Health Awareness Week, which recognizes the unique and intersectional healthcare needs of LGBTQ+ people, as well as the strength and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community.

    National LGBTQ+ Health Awareness Week - People

    Unfortunately, this year we have seen an unprecedented number of anti-LGBTQ+ bills and policies implemented across the country, including Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill and Texas’ attempted criminalization of comprehensive healthcare for trans and nonbinary youth.

    We at Philadelphia FIGHT are committed, now more than ever, to supporting LGBTQ+ people by providing comprehensive and affirming care to all in need. Whether you are a young person looking for a welcoming space to talk about your gender and sexuality, an older adult interested in ways to practice safer sex, or simply looking to start your health and wellness journey, we are here to provide you the care you need to live a full and happy life.

    Commitment to LGBTQ+ Patients

    In 2021, nearly one-third of all Philadelphia FIGHT’s patients identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and/or another sexual or gender minority. Specifically, 7% of Philadelphia FIGHT’s patients identified as transgender, nonbinary, or genderqueer. According to a 2022 Gallop poll, 7.1% of adults in the United States identify as LGBTQ+ and just under 1% of adults identify as transgender.

    Services Provided

    patient with doctor

    LGBTQ+ people have access to all the same comprehensive health services at FIGHT as our non-LGBTQ+ patients. Our services are available to those without insurance or the financial means to pay, and many of our services can be delivered in Spanish. Below is just a shortlist of some of the care LGBTQ+ people find at FIGHT:

    • Physicals, sick, and well visits
    • Gender affirming healthcare and hormone therapy
    • PEP and PrEP for HIV prevention
    • Comprehensive HIV care
    • STI testing and treatment
    • Family planning and reproductive health services
    • Mental healthcare and case management
    • Wellness-focused dental services
    • Benefits enrollment
    • Referrals to community partners focused on housing, legal, and education justice

    Focus on Women’s Health

    The Women’s Program supports HIV-positive women to heal, grow, maintain health, and achieve their goals.

    Women's Health
    Pictured left to right: Sashawna Parris, Lynette Trawick (volunteer and previous care navigator), Lizzy Schmidt, Glenda Bryant

    Our Mission

    The Women’s Program is committed to excellent care for women living with HIV that is comprehensive, team-based, and respectful of diverse cultural backgrounds and spiritual traditions. We partner with women living with HIV to heal, grow, maintain health, and achieve their goals. The Women’s Program uses a trauma-informed framework, recognizing that unaddressed and unhealed trauma impacts people’s current functioning. Our multi-disciplinary team members provide support to address life stressors that may interfere with taking life-saving medication and thriving.

    ‘Barrier Buster’ Care Navigation

    Funded through Ryan White Part D, care navigation addresses the needs of women living with HIV that are not covered by other Ryan White funding streams. The women we serve often face multiple structural barriers to care created by social determinants of health, and are outside of individual participants’ control. Other barriers are related to women’s caregiving responsibilities for children and elders, or the stigma still associated with HIV. Our care navigator accompanies people through our fragmented health care system and offers support and skill-building to develop empowerment and independence and support community engagement.

    Services include Preconception and pregnancy counseling for PLWHIV, ART adherence support, medical and psychosocial escorts, transportation support, emergency food assistance, advocacy within medical and other institutional systems (such as the courts) , crisis management for partner violence and relationship issues, short term counseling for grief and loss, building spiritual and community support to decrease stress and isolation.

    Programming

    In 2021 we started an SPNS initiative to improve retention in care and viral load suppression for Black women living with HIV in Philadelphia. Using three established evidence-informed interventions (WE CARE, Stay Connected, and Taking Care of Me) the project hopes to retain more Black women in care and help them remain virally suppressed. ‘G.E.M.S ‘ is a five-week small-group intervention with interactive sessions in which participants examine their risks, develop skills to reduce their risks, and receive feedback from others.

    In normal times, self-identified female patients may participate in our weekly women’s support group and our monthly women’s wellness workshop. We partner with the Fox Chase Mammogram Van and host a PAP-A-THON to increase access for our most vulnerable participants who have not engaged in routine cancer screenings. As part of the effort to End the AIDS Epidemic and prevent new infections, we encourage partner testing and referral for PrEP services for those who are interested.
