Health care worker knowledge of key concepts in the Monkeypox training curriculum was assessed, and participant feedback was collected on their ability to perform surveillance tasks.
The Monkeypox curriculum developed for this initiative was effective in transferring knowledge and was associated with improved detection of human Monkeypox cases.
