Description: Caption:
Created in May 2015, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Epidemiologist, Caitlin M. Worrell, MPH, this image depicted Mr. Daniel, a laboratory technician and transmission assessment surveys (TAS) team member, preparing to collect blood from a school child as part of a TAS survey, in the Dondon Commune in Northern Haiti. By testing the blood of school children for lymphatic filariasis (LF), the national program will be able to determine if mass drug administration (MDA) campaigns have been successful in reducing the prevalence of LF in Haiti. The results would hopefully show that this child’s generation would be the first to be free of lymphatic filariasis. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
