Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been fighting cholera in Haiti since the epidemic began in 2010, following the devastating earthquake. CDC-Haiti provides financial and technical support to the government of Haiti, including resources to improve water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) through increased water treatment and sanitation services; municipal chlorination of drinking water; the training of rural sanitation technicians; and the promotion of household water treatment products such as AquaJif—a liquid-based chlorine disinfection product. Here, water collection from a hand-dug well is monitored during a WASH evaluation. This picture earned photographer, Alaine Kathryn Knipes, a tie for Third Place, in the in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of International Programs.
