Geneva Screening of Snakebite Documentary “Minutes to Die”

Every year, snakebite envenoming kills more than 125,000, seriously injures over 2.7 million people and leaves at least 400,000 of those who survive with permanent disability. Yet, the world knows little about this widespread global health crisis, which is, in fact, preventable and treatable.

Minutes to Die, the first documentary film on this issue, takes viewers to the homes and hospital beds of snakebite victims, to labs where scientists are developing new, improved, and cost-effective treatments to a pivotal meeting of public health officials at the World Health Organization (WHO).

Against the backdrop of this year’s World Health Assembly (20-28 May 2019), where the first WHO-led global roadmap to minimise snakebite’s huge health and socio-economic cost is presented, this event couldn’t be more relevant.

The screening of Minutes to Die will be followed by a panel discussion with key players in the global fight against snakebite as well as an informal reception with food and drinks. Please bring a valid ID card with you.

The panel includes speakers from:

  • Health Action International
  • Médecins Sans Frontières
  • University of Geneva
  • World Health Organization
  • TBA
