On the Web - Snakebites kill or maim over 600,000 people worldwide every year in the developing world. Many of these tragic outcomes could be averted with effective antivenom use, yet it is estimated that less than 5% of patients receive lifesaving antivenom treatment. In order to address this crisis the Asclepius Snakebite Foundation was created, which is an international non-profit foundation led by many of the world experts in snakebite medicine. Their mission is to reverse the vicious circle of tragic snakebite outcomes through a combination of innovative research, clinical medicine, and education-based public health initiatives. Learn more about them on this episode of Herpin’ Time Radio.
