Created by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Sr. Systems Analyst, Julian Buckmaster, this image depicts what was an unintentional “selfie”, capturing what Julian, seated on the right, described as, “front line public health”. To his left sat two local Haitian mass drug administration (MDA) program staffers, as they traveled along a rough road - hence the blurriness - between MDA sites, piled high with stocks of drugs and supplies. This effort took place in Haiti during an annual school-based MDA, a form of preventative chemotherapy, for lymphatic filariasis (LF). The LF MDA, and testing system to manage widely-distributed MDAs, was developed by CDC under the CDC Innovation Fund. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
