Snakebites:world’s biggest hidden health crisis

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A multimillion-pound programme has been launched to improve treatment for snakebites, which are thought to kill up to 138,000 people each year.

Scientists said research is urgently needed into the problem as they described snake bites as the world’s biggest hidden health crisis.

Snakebites are treatable but doing so can be expensive, and experts say ineffective antivenom medicines, often in less developed countries, mean people living in the world’s poorest places are worst affected.
