Created in December 2014, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Epidemiologist, Caitlin M. Worrell, MPH, this image depicted a scene captured in the West African nation of Guinea during the 2014, Ebola response, which was the largest international outbreak response in CDC’s history. Hand hygiene, using chlorinated water, was promoted, as one way to reduce the risk of transmission of Ebola. Residents created improvised handwashing stations like this one, by adding chlorine and water to used water bottles. These improvised handwashing stations could be found dangling from homes, market stalls, and many other places throughout the Macenta Prefecture in Guinea. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
