Created in March, 2015, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Epidemiologist, Rebecca Hall, MPH, this image depicts a group of school children, who’d gathered outside of a maternal health clinic in Bong County Liberia, close to the border with Guinea, in order to observe CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) epidemiologists talking with the clinic’s staff, to assess knowledge and capacity, in order to identify suspected Ebola cases. Schools in Liberia were closed for six months during the Ebola epidemic, and at the time of this photograph, had recently re-opened. The near-elimination of new Ebola virus disease (EVD) cases in Liberia, by March, 2015, had shifted the focus of the CDC’s response to the border areas with Guinea and Sierra Leone, where transmission was still widespread, and in some areas, uncontrolled. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
