Did you know that between 81,000-138,000 people every year are bitten by snakes? They also leave 400,000 more with life-changing disabilities. The majority happen in in rural Africa, Asia and South America.
The burden of death and disability is greater than any other neglected tropical disease and equal to that of prostate or cervical cancer.
Wellcome's new ambitious new £80 million programme aims to transform the way snakebite treatments are researched and delivered, to make them better, safer and more accessible for all.
