Created in May 2015, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Epidemiologist, Caitlin M. Worrell, MPH, this image depicted a Haitian child holding on to his blood tube during a transmission assessment survey (TAS) that was being conducted in the Dondon Commune in Northern Haiti. By testing the blood collected in this tube for lymphatic filariasis (LF), the national program would be able to determine if mass drug administration (MDA) campaigns had 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.
