This photograph depicted a mother, reviewing her daughter’s vaccination documents, in the capital city of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where paper health records are used to document childhood medical visits, and vaccinations. In August 2017, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) worked with residents and graduates from the CDC’s Field Epidemiology and Laboratory Training Program (FELTP), in the DRC, and with colleagues from the Institut National de Laboratoire Biomedical, to conduct a survey of measles and rubella immunity. Study participants were asked to show documentation of their vaccination history, when their records were available. In this image, a young girl looked on, as her mother proudly displayed her collection of all vaccination cards, and medical records, from the time of her daughter’s birth.
