Makerere University through the School of Public Health (MakSPH) in collaboration with the Ministry of Health (Uganda), World Health Organisation (WHO) Uganda Country Office and the Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Centre (UWEC) have organised a webinar in commemoration of the International Snakebite Awareness Day (ISBAD) under the theme; Snakebite envenoming the neglected public health Problem: Strategies to reduce mortality and morbidity.
ISBAD is commemorated globally every year to raise awareness of one of the world’s biggest hidden health crises. In 2018 the Global Snakebite Initiative, Health Action International and the Lillian Lincoln Foundation announced 19th September as the ‘International Snakebite Awareness Day’. This was in response to WHO’s global strategy to reduce disability and death due to snakebites by half by the year 2030’.
The Webinar is slated for Friday September 23rd 2022 between 12:00-2:00 PM and will be blended with a physical audience at MakSPH Seminar Room 3, New Mulago Hospital Complex and on Zoom.
NB: UWEC will be showcasing some live rare snake species available in Uganda at Mulago-MakSPH Complex.
