PHIL Image 18298
 
ID#:18298
Description:Clothed in their blue personal protective equipment (PPE), the chemists depicted in this 2013 photograph were in the process of mixing a bleach solution that they would then use to fill the blue-colored bottles seen in PHIL 18291 through 18293. Here you see one of the technicians using a mechanized pipette to extract some solution from an Erlenmeyer flask containing a bleach diluent about to have its chloride concentration tested. These laboratorians worked for the non-governmental organization (NGO) Haitian Group for the Study of Kaposi’s Sarcoma and Opportunistic Infections (GHESKIO) in a lab on the GHESKIO grounds in Port-au-Prince. With CDC support, GHESKIO is distributing bleach as a way to fight cholera across Haiti.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) office in Haiti opened in 2002, and focused on preventing the transmission of HIV/AIDS, providing care and treatment to those already infected, increasing laboratory and strategic information capacity, and building health care infrastructure.

Access to safe water and sanitation are fundamental to public health. The National Directorate of Potable Water and Sanitation (DINEPA) was created by regulation enacted on March 25th 2009 in order to address challenges, and the lack of regulation for the rural water sector in Haiti.
