Captured somewhere in the Middle Eastern nation of Iraq, during an unidentified Iraqi Field Epidemiology Training Program (IFETP) outbreak investigation, this image depicts FETP residents in the process of analyzing a public water spigot, which was used to fill a small cement cistern, as part of the investigative process. Data collected from this exercise will help to trace the cause, and origins of this undefined outbreak.
Additional Information:
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. See the link below, for more on the FETP.
