MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The World Health Organization announced on Monday that it would use the term “mpox” as an alternative synonym for monkeypox disease, due to the offensive connotation of the original term.

The WHO clarified that the two terms would be used simultaneously for a one-year transition period, until “monkeypox” is “eliminated” completely.

“As the monkeypox outbreak spread earlier this year, racist and stigmatizing language online, in other settings and in some communities was observed and reported to WHO. In several meetings, public and private, a number of people and countries have raised their concerns and asked the WHO to propose a way forward to change the name,” the WHO said.

According to the press release, mpox will be included in the 11th revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), the current global standard for health data, clinical documentation and statistical aggregation. The WHO clarified that updating the ICD usually takes several years, but the process has been accelerated for urgent issues.

The WHO noted that it had been diligent in finding a solution to the problem and developing the replacement term.

“Various advisory bodies were heard during the consultation process, including experts from the Medical and Scientific Advisory and Classification and Statistics Committees which were made up of representatives of government authorities from 45 different countries,” the WHO said.

In order to preserve historical data, the term “monkeypox” can still be searched in the ICD.
