Entitled, “Hygiene Program for Egyptian School Children”, this image was captured by CDC Public Health Advisor, Kathie Fazekas, MPH, in the Center for Global Health (CGH), Division of Global HIV/AIDS, Program Budget and Extramural Management Branch. The photograph showed the fruits of a program targeting school children in Cairo, Egypt. The program offered instructions on proper hand-washing technique, and how to cover coughs, in an effort to decrease transmission of the flu virus. Program activities included having the children create a play, with songs about good handwashing hygiene, and the importance of covering coughs and sneezes. This photo earned Kathie a tie for the First Place award in the 2011
Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of Programs-International.
