Avoid stigmatisation, says Fong Permanent Secretary for Health Dr James Fong says he wants to avoid monkeypox becoming a disease of stigma where the person who gets it becomes castigated.

In an interview after launching the invention prevention and control guideline, Dr Fong said he also does not want the person to make look like he belongs to the lower part of the society.

He said rather than stigmatising a person for contracting the virus, the public need to show their support to the general public to ensure that they do not get sick.

“I think the biggest concern that I have is that I want to avoid this particular monkeypox becoming a disease of stigma where the person who gets it becomes castigated,” he said.

“What we need to do now is that we need to celebrate every citizen's intention to be able to contribute to the protection of Fiji.

 “So that means those who get it need to be supported to ensure that they get well and their families need to be supported to ensure that their families don't get sick.

“I think that's more important. Now, if this beginning stage that even before we hit an acute phase, it doesn't become too much of a problem for us,” he said.

He said clinicians should report suspected cases immediately to national public health authorities regardless of whether they are also exploring other potential diagnoses.
