Created in May 2015, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Epidemiologist, Caitlin M. Worrell, MPH, this image depicted a healthcare worker, Mr. Syeed Sultan Mahmood, as he gingerly dried the leg of a woman affected by lymphedema, which had been caused by her lymphatic filariasis (LF). This was done as part of a leg hygiene demonstration during a morbidity management, and disability prevention training session, held at the Panchagarh Sadar District, Tetulia Health Center in northern Bangladesh. The trainees would go on to implement the techniques learned, in their respective health facilities, and relieve the suffering of lymphedema patients in their respective districts. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
