Description: Caption:
This image depicts a Filipino Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, as he was examining a patient affected by a Henipavirus infection in Sultan Kudarat, Mindanao, Philippines, for neurological symptoms. The patient was admitted a week after consuming meat from a horse that had died from an unknown cause, however, the horse had also been linked to other Henipavirus cases. Though this patient survived, he was left with chronic neurological symptoms. 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.
