This image was captured, while a member of the Brazilian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) team of investigators was conducting interviews with residents in the rural municipality of Alagoas, in northeastern Brazil, in July 2013. It was discovered through interviews like the one, that residents presenting with episodes of diarrhea, were later identified as cases linked to an outbreak associated with a lack of potable drinking water in the region. 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.
