This image was captured by CDC staffer, Emily Cramer, who said, “I was deployed to the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) in May 2016, to assist the USVI Department of Health (DoH) with communication and outreach for their Zika outbreak. My teammate and I worked out of Roy L. Schneider Medical Center, on St. Thomas, which also housed the DoH prenatal clinic that distributes Zika Prevention Kits (ZPKs) to pregnant women, who have been tested for Zika.” In this photo, taken inside the prenatal clinic, Nurse Janet Denton-Bennett was sharing a new ZPK with her patient Le’Nique T. Abbott. After sharing the ZPK, Nurse Bennett explains the health communication materials with Le’Nique, outlining how to use each item in the kit, which included a bed net, mosquito dunks, permethrin spray, insect repellent, and condoms. The picture was an entry in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the categories of Programs-Domestic and People-Domestic.
