Last year, a coalition of organisations working on global health and tropical medicine around
the world, including Health Action International, launched the first-ever International Snakebite
Awareness Day to raise awareness of the huge, yet mostly unrecognised, global impact of
snakebite. This year, following the launch of the World Health Organization’s global strategy on snakebite prevention and control, we’re especially excited for the second edition of the awareness day!
On the 19th September we’re participating in a series of international Facebook Live events. Snakebite Project Manager Ben Waldmann will be going live from our Facebook page at 4pm CEST, tune in to hear about our latest work in snakebite prevention.
