The legacy of neglect for snakebite is clear with up to one-third of the annual global snakebite deaths occurring in Sub-Saharan Africa. 

This neglect includes the uncounted deaths and severe and permanent morbidity caused by these bites. The 2019 WHO roadmap has a clearly stated goal of halving snakebite deaths and disability worldwide by 2030. However, achieving that goal is considerably hampered by the lack of high-quality research evidence to inform policy and practice.

The African Snakebite Alliances aims to address this in the coming years.
