Snakebite is the cause of death globally for more than 125,000 deaths a year. In addition, some 400,000 people each year will suffer from life-long health complications such as disfigured limbs or amputation. Snakebite is a constant fear among global citizens in rural areas — farmers, children and homemakers — as interaction with venomous snakes are inevitable. In 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) added snakebite to its list of Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and requires governments of snakebite-endemic countries to make snakebite a priority by providing their people with an available supply of quality, effective and affordable antivenom treatments. This means that it is critical that we all act now.
