Entitled, Children Playing in a River, this image was captured by CDC Public Health Advisor, Alison Smith, MPH, a staff member in the Malaria Branch, of the Division of Parasitic Diseases (DPDx). The picture shows two happy children at play in a dirty, polluted river in the Irrawaddy Delta region of Myanmar. This village is built entirely on stilts in the water, but the villagers do not have access to unpolluted water for drinking or bathing. This photo earned Smith the Third Place award in the 2009 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of International People.
