Description: Caption:
Entitled, “The Kato-Katz Technique in Tanzania”, this image was created by CDC ORISE Fellow, Alaine Kathryn Knipes. Inongu Mtumba, a technician with Tanzania’s Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) control program, is pictured here using the Kato-Katz method to prepare stool specimens, and diagnose soil-transmitted helminths (STH) infections in the field. Mtumba was part of a field team demonstrating the feasibility of integrating a Transmission Assessment Survey (TAS) for lymphatic filariasis (LF) with an assessment for STH. This photo earned Alaine one of her three First Place awards in the 2014 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International People”.
