Currently, there are no established screening programs or guidelines for monkeypox in the Americas, Europe, or MENA "Middle East and North Africa" region.


  • Monkeypox has been periodically identified in very small numbers in non-endemic regions.
  • As of June 13, 2022, no screening measures were recommended in the Americas, Europe, or MENA "Middle East and North Africa" region.
  • The Department of Disease Control in Thailand took precautionary measures, screening travelers arriving into Thailand international airports as a response to the 2022 global outbreak. The screening targets arrivals from countries where monkeypox cases have been reported[1].
  • The Department of Health in the Philippines establishes a monitoring and surveillance program in light of the global outbreak.
  • The Center for Health Protection in Hong Kong established a preparedness and response plan for monkeypox that includes three-tier response level system with each level representing a graded risk of monkeypox affecting Hong Kong and its health impact on the community[2].
