2022 Campaign: ‘Challenges and Barriers to Accessing Effective Treatment’

2022 Challenges and Barriers to Access Effective Treatment

Terrain and physical land obstacles. Lack of basic transportation. Unequipped primary health centers devoid of trained health workers. Time lost seeking traditional medicine options. Communities lacking education on preventing snakebites and the proper first aid to practice in the event of a bite. All of these are challenges and barriers to accessing effective treatment for a snake bite in all parts of the world. This year, we highlight these stories to let the world see the challenges for receiving that last mile of care. A launching point to developing solutions. Watch the video above to see how a crocodile-infested river in Kilifi County Kenya presents a major obstacle for those on the other side of the river.
