Honoring International Women's Day

In honor of International Women's Day and to celebrate the work and achievement of women, these photos highlight the many faces that we have captured throughout the world as we document CDC programs in action. From CDC scientists who conducted disease surveillance after the earthquake in Haiti, to “Mama Sprinkles,” who distributes micronutrient packets to families in Kenya’s Nyanza Province, the photos tell the story of how women, working with common dedication and cause, can improve the health of communities everywhere.















Terri Heyns, MA, is the associate vice president for communications for the CDC Foundation.
