Description: Caption:
This photograph captured in November 2014, depicted Yemeni Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents, conducting a Dengue fever investigation in Alhudaidah, Yemen. An important part of the Dengue fever investigation is examining stagnant water for Aedes spp. mosquito larvae, which upon becoming adults, are responsible for transmitting the Dengue fever virus. 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.
