[Correspondence] Treating snake bites—a call for partnership

We welcome the Editorial (Sept 19, p 1110)1 that highlights the devastating effect of snake bites on health and the fact that Africa could soon be deprived of access to one of the most effective snake bite treatments. Likewise, we appreciate the initiative taken by the Wellcome Trust in organising an event (Sept 22–23, 2015)2 that brought together key players to identify mechanisms to “reverse the public health neglect of tropical snakebite victims”.
