This photograph was captured on March 26, 2014, in Muzaffarabad, Pakistan, and depicted Pakistani Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents, Dr. Ayaz Chohan, and Dr. Khushal Khan Kasi, as they were in the process of checking an infant for the Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) vaccination scar, enabling these doctors to verify that the child had been immunized against tuberculosis. 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.
