Photographed inside the Yirgalem prison, located in the Southern Nation and Nationality Peoples Region of Ethiopia, this image was captured during an Ethiopian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) outbreak investigation, and depicted a number of prisoners receiving treatment for TBRF, which included the administration of intravenous fluids. 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.
