Entitled, “Namibia’s National Immunization Week”, this image was created by CDC Health Scientist, Michael L Washington, PhD, Division of Preparedness and Emerging Infections, Scientific and Program Services Branch, Health Economics and Modeling Unit (HEMU). As his mother held him close, this child's arm was measured in order to determine if his growth rate was normal. This was a typical procedure during National Immunization Week for polio in July, 2011, in Ondunu, Namibia. The image earned Michael the First Place award in the 2012
Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International People”.
