Entitled, “Evaluating Mosquito Nets to Prevent Malaria”, this image was created by CDC Epidemiologist, Gabriel Ponce de León, MPH, in the Center for Global Health, Division of Parasitic Diseases and Malaria. As part of the President’s Malaria Initiative, the CDC Mozambique team examined the condition of long lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) after years of use. In this photo, a local surveyor was examining holes in an LLIN during the evaluation of net durability. The LLIN will then be evaluated in a laboratory, to examine the quality of the remaining insecticide. Ideally, these evaluation will contribute to policies governing the replacement of failed nets. The picture earned Gabriel the Second Place award in the 2011 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International Programs”.
