Snakebite and snakebite envenoming remain one of the most neglected of the Neglected Tropical Diseases, with this neglect meaning that the impact of snakebite on the world’s most vulnerable communities remains understated. What persists are the far-reaching consequences of the 2 million or more annual snakebites, particularly for already impoverished communities. According to the World Health Organization, snakebite and snakebite envenoming cause some 400,000 permanent disabilities worldwide annually, in addition to the 80,000-140,000 estimated fatalities. To mark this year’s International Day of People with Disabilities, our next ISNTD Connect session will look at the impact that tackling snakebite envenoming at the primary healthcare and community levels can have on preventing and mitigating disability worldwide. We are delighted to welcome perspectives from Nigeria, Malawi and India brought by our three speakers:

Dr Agom D. Ibrahim (Medical doctor & founder of the Snakebite Control Network (S-CONET) Nigeria)

Moses Banda Aron (Partners In Health & Research Associate at the Bernhard Nocht Institute of Tropical Medicine, Snake Envenoming Group)
