Description:Caption:
This photograph was captured in 2015, during Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) efforts to support the Ebola response in Sierra Leone, by CDC staff member, Penny Loosier. This photo depicts the end phase of a demonstration that started with a team member in charge of ambulance decontamination. This team member would dress in full personal protective equipment (PPE) in front of the gathered crowd, and would then offer to let people wash their hands in the spray he used to decontaminate the ambulance to demonstrate that it was not harmful. Here, community members were shown taking him up on his offer, and finding out for themselves, that the chlorine spray was not the harmful agent they had thought it to be.

The picture was an entry in the 2016 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the categories of People – International and Programs - International.
