Captured in September, 2014, this image depicts health promoter, Cristina Martinez (far right wearing a hat), and Mexican Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents conducting an outbreak investigation of an acute diarrheal disease outbreak in the municipality of Los Cabos, in the state of Baja California Sur, Mexico, as part of a health protocol for disaster surveillance after hurricane Odile.
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.
