Launch of Snakebite Envenoming roadmap

Updated: Feb 12

An amazing day for victims of snakebite today. The launch of World Health Organization (WHO) global strategy for control and prevention of snakebite envenoming kicks off with the Roadmap Launch Reception. Held at the Restaurant Vieux-Bois on Avenue de la Paix, Geneva.

Bio-Ken would like to thank all our partners and associates for all their help and support in this most honorable of causes. We would especially like to thank the Global Snakebite Initiative GSI and Health Action International HAI for all the amazing work that they have put into this and to the NTD team at WHO that put it all together. Here is one for the patient in a hospital bed that is so in need of help right across the world. Well done to everyone that was involved in this strategy development. Representatives from GSI, HAI, Bio-Ken and JAAT will be there to celebrate this mile stone and answer your questions. The event will be streamed live on the WHO website for those who can’t make it.



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.
