Entitled, “Hand-Washing to Stay Healthy”, this image was created by CDC’s Association of Schools of Public Health/CDC (ASPH/CDC) Alan Rosenfield Global Health fellow, Caitlin M. Worrell. The photo shows three children enthusiastically showing off their hand-washing technique outside of a latrine in the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya. Though many residents in Kibera have limited access to municipal water and sewerage services, putting them at risk for water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH)-related diseases, many make hand hygiene a priority in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and ward off illness. This picture earned Caitlin the Second Place award in the 2012 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International People”.
