The European premiere of ‘Minutes to Die’ by Lillian Lincoln Foundation to be screened at Venoms 2017
Snakebite has recently been added to the WHO list of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs). Each year, an estimated 125,000 lives are lost, mostly children and agricultural workers in the most productive period of their lives. Another 400,000 will suffer from long-term disability; constant wound care, amputations and ongoing psychological morbidity. For those who do get treatment, families are often forced to decide between life, and years of debt from overpriced antivenoms, if antivenom is even available.
We are delighted to announce that the European premiere of ‘Minutes to Die’, showing stories of snakebite victims, filmed James Reid and funded by the Lillian Lincoln Foundation, will be screened at Venoms 2017 on 29th August.
The Global Snakebite Initiative, Health Action International and the Lilian Lincoln Foundation have joined forces to give you the opportunity to look behind the numbers at the true story of snakebite and what we can do about it, with the European Premiere of the film ‘Minutes to Die’. Meet experts working in the field, preventing and curing snakebite envenoming, and those working with the World Health Organization (WHO) to provide lasting solutions to this hitherto forgotten and most Neglected Tropical Disease. This screening will be open to the public and will be followed by a drinks reception and a question-answer session with the key stars of the film.
