Fishermen

Men wash before prayers at the fishing port of Conakry, Guinea, Tuesday Nov. 25, 2014. In March 2014, the World Health Organization with support from UNICEF and Doctors Without Borders vaccinated some 200,000 fishermen on islands north of Conakry, the capital, where they gather from Guinea and neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia during the fishing season. The area had been identified as a major transmission source for cholera since the fishermen set up temporary shelters and have no toilets or clean water. Guinea has recorded only one cholera case this year, down from thousands, in a rare success that experts cautiously attribute to the vaccinations against the water-borne disease, and hand-washing in the campaign against Ebola.
