Description:Caption:
Entitled, “Stopping Stigma”, this image was captured by CDC Epidemiologist, Rebecca Hall, MPH. The social media campaign, “I am a Liberian not a Virus”, was sparked by several Liberian women. They came up with it after the fear, and stigmatization against people from countries affected by Ebola, as well as some unaffected African countries, peaked in the United States after the first US case of Ebola was diagnosed in a Liberian man in Texas, in September, 2014. That man succumbed to the disease, a week after he was diagnosed, on October 8, 2014. This photo earned Rebecca a tie for the Second Place award in the 2015 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “Ebola Outbreak”.
