Entitled, “Nutrition and Mortality Survey, Chad”, this image depicts two Sudanese refugee children in Iridimi, a refugee camp in northeastern Chad, as they were fetching water in jerry cans during a sandstorm. CDC conducted a survey, at the request of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, to document the mortality rate, and prevalence of malnutrition among children less than 5-years old. The photo was captured in June, 2004, by Basia Tomczyk, DrPH, MS, RN, and earned her a tie for Second Place in the 2006 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International: People”.
