This image depicts two Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents, Dr. Eshraq Alfalahi, and Dr. Manal Baees, as they were visiting the home of a Yemeni family of a deceased patient confirmed to have had the influenza A (H1N1) virus. At this point in their visit, the doctors were in the process of completing questionnaires, just before taking nasal swab samples from the deceased’s close contacts, most of whom were young children, including the three shown here in the foreground.
Additional Information:
The FETP trains workers on the ground to help countries build sustainable capacity for detecting and responding to health threats. The program develops in-country expertise so that disease outbreaks can be detected locally and prevented from spreading.
