This image was captured in the Haitian commune of Cerca Carvajal in September 2013, during a public health effort to thwart a cholera outbreak on the island nation, which had begun after the country’s devastating 2010 earthquake. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) participated in the oral cholera vaccine (OCV) campaign, sending qualified public health professionals to Haiti. In this view, CDC Medical Epidemiologist, Rania Tohme, MD, was standing on the right, stopping her busy schedule to pose for this portrait with young members of a local family. The opportunity to build bridges between public health field workers, and the local inhabitants, was never squandered, and the children were always happy to follow members of the OCV teams around, wherever they went, always enjoying the prospect of having their picture taken.
