This photograph was captured in November 2014, and depicted entomologists examining samples of water, harvested from stagnant pools during an outbreak investigation of Dengue fever in Alhudaidah, Yemen, checking for the presence of Aedes spp. mosquito larvae, which upon becoming adults, are responsible for transmitting the dengue fever virus. The Dengue fever investigation was conducted by Yemeni Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents. 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.
