Here we see Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) staff members on their way to an Afghanistan hospital. Modes of transportation are limited due to factors including the country’s hazardous terrain, and economic constraints, so here, these public health field workers were seated atop horses as they made their journey.
Additional Information:
“CDC leverages its core strengths to advance four overarching global health goals: 1) improving the health and well-being of people around the world, 2) improving capabilities for preparing for and responding to infectious diseases and emerging health threats, 3) building country public health capacity, and 4) maximizing organizational capacity.”
