This image depicted Iraqi Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) graduate, Wisaam Altaai, as he was in the process of completing a health assessment visit at a displacement camp in Diyala, Iraq. Health teams from the Department of Public Health in Diyala, and the FETP conducted health assessments at displacement camps in the region between June, and December 2014. In this view, you can see a young girl squatting next to a plastic basin, filled with what appeared to be cloudy water, as she was helping with the family’s chores, by cleaning a drinking glass. 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.
