Snakebite data

A suggestion has been put to the Medical Association in Kenya that small teams of trained data gatherers be authorised  to access hospital and clinic records to take out the necessary information on each bite case and that this system continue on a regular basis. The dynamics of human population increases, land uses and climate changes will alter case numbers from year to year so data collection should be an on-going process to assist the most economic distribution of antivenom.  


To be bitten by a poisonous snake is everyone’s worst nightmare. In Africa this happens to people quite regularly especially to those in the rural communities. The primary objective of the James Ashe Antivenom Trust (JAAT) is to reduce the number of deaths and maiming caused by those many snakebites.
