[Comment] Addressing the global challenge of snake envenoming

Joshua Longbottom and colleagues1 highlight once again that snake envenoming is a major health issue affecting remote and rural regions of the tropics. They use information about venomous snake distribution, health-care access, and availability of antivenom to identify the most vulnerable populations to snakebite. This modelling study1 reported in The Lancet identified about 92·66 million people living in regions vulnerable to snakebite, including sub-Saharan Africa, southeast Asia, and Indonesia.
