Risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) resources for the 2022 mpox (monkeypox) outbreak

ECDC has produced risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) materials for the current mpox (monkeypox) outbreak. These include

  • documents that address RCCE in the current mpox (monkeypox) outbreak, and provide examples of ongoing RCCE activities in the EU/EEA countries
  • ready-to-use tools for public health authorities at the regional and national levels

These materials were produced in collaboration with the WHO Regional Office for Europe and civil society organisations. Risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) strategies are a core element of any outbreak response and are essential in this outbreak to achieve results across all the proposed measures.
