This image depicts an interview in progress involving Pakistani Field Epidemiology Training Program (PFETP) fifth cohort residents, Dr. Mumtaz Khan and Dr. Nadeem Ur Rehman as they were questioning residents of the village of Barkhan, near Islamabad, Pakistan, in December, 2012.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ) works with several key public health institutions in Pakistan. CDC has partnerships with Pakistan’s National Institute of Health (NIH), as well as the provincial and district level offices, to strengthen capacity and infrastructure for key public health issues, including workforce development, hepatitis surveillance, and polio eradication efforts. CDC also has strong partnerships with Aga Khan University to foster research in the areas of vaccinations and neonatal infections. Despite the recent devolution of Pakistan’s Ministry of Health (MoH), CDC continues to conduct activities in Pakistan through its established relationships with provincial governments.”
