Three leading charities have come together to warn the newly appointed Health Secretary, Thérèse Coffey MP, that dealing with monkeypox needs to be a top priority.

The current outbreak has thrown a number of clinics into crisis, with many vital services – such as HIV prevention and contraception access – displaced by the need to deal with the virus.

In some cases, this has resulted in a 90% reduction in access to PrEP and long-acting reversible contraception, according to the British Association for Sexual Health & HIV.
