Captured somewhere in the Middle Eastern nation of Iraq, during an unidentified Iraqi Field Epidemiology Training Program (IFETP) outbreak investigation in 2011, this image depicts FETP resident Asaad Mahdi Asaad (left), and two of his colleagues, in the process of collecting blood samples from locale residents.
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 what public health assistance the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is providing in Iraq, and more on the FETP.
