Description:Caption:
Captured during a Pakistani Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) prevention and control operation, this image depicts a group of men trying to navigate a small rescue boat through the flooded streets of the Shikarpur District, in the Province of Sindh, Pakistan, in October, 2013.
Additional Information:
As in September, 2012, monsoon rains affected the Sukkur, Shikarpur, Jacobabad, Ghotki, Kashmore, and Kandhkot Districts, killing 455 people, and displacing about five million people. Floods provide a favorable environment for the spread of infectious diseases like diarrhea, respiratory infections, skin diseases and viral hepatitis. Therefore, in response to this 2013 monsoon, medical teams, like the FETP, were deployed into the affected areas in order to disseminate health education regarding prevention and control of epidemics, and responded to 229 alerts, and 50 verified outbreaks.

For more on the FETP, see the link below.
