Created in May 2015, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Epidemiologist, Caitlin M. Worrell, MPH, this image depicted a Bangladeshi health worker, as he was demonstrating proper leg hygiene technique on the right leg of a lymphatic filariasis (LF) patient, during a morbidity management, and disability prevention training at the Panchagarh Sadar District Hospital in northern Bangladesh. The trainees would then go on to implement the techniques learned in their respective health facilities, and relieve the suffering of LF patients with lymphedema in their district. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
