SNAKEBITE CRISIS

MAGNITUDE

Approximately 5 million snake bites occur each year in the world, resulting in up to 2.7 million envenomation’s, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Each year, between 81,000 and 138,000 people die, according to published reports.

OTHER EFFECTS OF SNAKEBITES

There are approximately 400,000 amputations and other permanent disabilities caused by snakebite envenoming each year. In many cases, snakebites go  unreported because victims seek treatment from non-medical sources or do not have access to medical care. This results in many snakebite cases going unreported.

ANTI SNAKE VENOMS (ASV)

Most of the harmful effects of snakebite envenoming  can be prevented or reversed by snake antivenoms. Anti Snake Venoms (ASV) should be a part of any primary health care package.

INDIAN SCENARIO

WHO added snakebite envenoming to its  priority list of neglected tropical  diseases (NTDs) in June 2017. A nationally representative study  (Million Death study) noted–56,000* annual snakebite deaths nationally. In India, around 90% of snake bites are caused by  the ‘big four’ among the  crawlers – common krait, Indian cobra, Russell’s viper  and saw scaled viper.

PROVIDING ASV KITS IN RURAL AREAS

ASV or Anti-Snake Venom is the only
effective treatment for snakebite
envenomation. Availability of ASV
is very crucial in snake bite management.
But in many remote areas of rural
India it’s hard to get ASV in primary
health centers.
