This 2016 image, depicted a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Border Health Team in action, as they were visiting Magazine Wharf, located in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Trimmed in yellow, and displaying the name, Tawakaltu 6, this approaching boat was coming from a village near the Guinea border. West African health officials monitored wharves for transmission of Ebola from neighboring countries. CDC helped officials of both countries, by sharing information about recent cases, thereby, strengthening future collaboration. This picture earned photographer, Aaron Aranas, a tie for Second Place, in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of International Programs.
