Monkeypox is a contagious disease caused by the monkeypox virus. There is currently an outbreak of monkeypox in the U.S. and other countries where the virus is not usually seen. The current monkeypox situation is evolving quickly and is subject to change. As vaccine supplies are limited, the Hawaii Department of Health has developed a strategy for vaccine allocation in Hawaii to protect those at increased risk of infection or severe disease.
We provide counseling, hormone replacement therapy, and continued care for individuals seeking these services.
