Captured in the Eastern Province of Kenya, 2004, this image depicts a Nigerian Field Epidemiology Training Program (NFETP) resident, Dr. Patrick Nguku, seated with a member of a local village in Kenya's Eastern Province, gathering data, and offering comforting information, during during a local aflatoxicosis outbreak. He’d then analyze the recorded data, which he’d use to possibly track and trace the cause of the outbreak.
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. See the links below, for more on the FETP.
