This photo was taken in April 2015, during a typhoid fever outbreak investigation in Uganda. Working with the Uganda Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) to identify the mode of transmission of the outbreak, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) environmental microbiologists, in the Waterborne Disease Prevention Branch, identified potentially contaminated water sources, by testing water onsite, or collecting water samples, and analyzing them in a laboratory. In search of an unprotected spring, CDC scientists came across these children playing in the neighborhood, a reminder of the people that CDC serves. This picture earned photographer, Jennifer Murphy, a First Place award, in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of International Programs.
