This photograph depicts a Peruvian woman seated at the bedside of a young child, who was lying in bed, cloaked in mosquito netting, preventing the arboviral transfer of illnesses from insect to infant. This image was captured in a clinical setting, during a Peruvian Field Epidemiology Training Program (PFETP) outbreak investigation.
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.
