Photographed in May, 2013, this image depicts a Haitian Field Epidemiology Training Program (HFETP) resident in the foreground, who was in the process of recording the weight of a young female Haitian study participant, as a community volunteer was reciting the scale’s readout. Note that the resident is wearing a shirt displaying the FETP HAITI logo, including the worn out shoe of the investigative, tireless epidemiologist.
This study included the completion of a questionnaire, as depicted in PHIL 19708. These activities were part of a knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) study that was performed in the urban area of Ennery, in order to determine the prevalence of arterial hypertension. The 3 main activities of the study included the KAP interview, blood pressure recording, as well as the measurement of participants’ height and weight.
