Asclepius Snakebite Foundation (ASF)
Snakebites kill or maim over 600,000 people worldwide every year in the developing world. Many of these tragic outcomes could be averted with effective antivenom use, yet it is estimated that less than 5% of patients receive lifesaving antivenom treatment. In order to address this crisis, we created the Asclepius Snakebite Foundation, an international non-profit foundation led by many of the world experts in snakebite medicine. Our mission is to reverse the vicious circle of tragic snakebite outcomes through a combination of innovative research, clinical medicine, and education-based public health initiatives. Help us lead the way as we fight to save the lives and limbs of snakebite patients around the world.
