Wearing a white shirt, this image depicts Zimbabwean Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, Dr. Pugie Chimberengwa, and school health master, Mrs. Hilda Manyengavana (pink dress), speaking before a group of school children, in order to educate pupils, teachers and members of the community about schistosomiasis, during a “culture day” held at the school.
Additional Information:
This lesson covered the importance of avoiding contact with infested bodies of water, by not swimming, bathing or drinking from these water sources. Boiling drinking water, and the use of toilets for human waste disposal, were encouraged. The picture was taken at Kwite Primary School, in the Mangwe district, located in the South province of Matebeleland, Zimbabwe, on July 6, 2012.
