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.
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. See the links below, for more on the FETP.
