PAPUA NEW GUINEA SNAKEBITE PARTNERSHIP

In 2018, we flew with Seqirus to Papua New Guinea to tell the story of the PNG Snakebite Partnership, a collaborative project between government, industry and academia with the shared vision of reducing the burden of snakebite on the people of PNG.

Papua New Guinea is home to some highly venomous snakes including the Papuan Taipan and the Death Adder. Each year, around 1000 people are reported to have died from from snakebite envenomation in PNG.
