Project Activities: • Building a snakebite evidence base: We are gathering much-needed data from healthcare facilities and communities on snakebite cases and antivenom treatment. • Conducting evidence-based advocacy: We are recruiting and building the capacity of champions to review and use our data to call for policy changes by national stakeholders, including the Ministry of Health. • Increasing community education: We are providing communities with information and tools to learn how to prevent snakebite and provide effective first-aid and treatment for it.
