Entitled, “Indigenous Women Seek Preventative Care”, this image was created by CDC ORISE Fellow, Analía Romina Stormo, with the Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC). This indigenous woman was shown here, entering the Women’s Hospital in La Paz, Bolivia, where CDC was conducting a demonstration project, the goal of which was to increase cervical cancer screening capacity. The photo highlights the contrast between the indigenous women seeking care, and the non-indigenous, westernized male medical students who often provide the services. The image earned Analía a tie for the Third Place award in the 2011 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International Programs”.
