Captured near the Cannibo River, in the Nan Mango area of Palma, Haiti, in September 2011, this image depicted the water samples collected during a typhoid outbreak investigation, a year after a devastating earthquake had struck the island nation. Note the red-colored, STAT biohazard bag being used by the Haitian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident on the left, Dr. Pierre Wilnique, to carry water samples, for immediate laboratory analysis. Dr. Wilnique’s shirt proudly displayed the symbol of the tireless epidemiologist, the worn out shoe. 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.
