Minister of Health Francisco Alabi participated on Friday in a meeting of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) about progress and response in the region to monkeypox.

“This extraordinary session is very important to tackle monkeypox based on scientific evidence,” according to Alabi, who chaired the special session of the PAHO Governing Board.

During a virtual meeting, this organization provided its member States with updated information about this disease and the search to secure vaccines to protect the population, the Press Secretariat of the Presidency posted on Twitter.

The past few years have been difficult due to infectious diseases. However, being united has been important to face these hardships, Abadi said.

This illness has already been reported in Guatemala, where the first case was detected on August 3. Guatemalan authorities also reported that another three suspected cases are under surveillance.
