Snakebite: A Global Health Crisis Not to Be Forgotten

In 2018, International Snakebite Awareness Day was born when the world needed to know about this mostly ignored crisis. But awareness and action needed more than just one day. As the global community focuses on implementing WHO’s global strategy to reduce death and disability by half by 2030, a great deal of the work starts in communities, hospitals and in labs across the globe. You can do your part. Share stories. Use our important prevention materials in communities. As one, we can all make an impact!
