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 holding 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 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) support, GHESKIO is distributing bleach as a way to fight cholera across Haiti.
