The Ongoing Task of Sensitisation
As HHiSS we fundamentally believe, that creating awareness and sensitising people is the most efficient and effective strategy in the management of snakebites. Effective sensitisation campaigns can and will reduce the incidence of snakebite.
In order to do so, we engage with any interested area, community, school, university, organisation, institution and company that is interested in snake sensitisation. From companies and larger organisations and institutions we request a small fee which in turn will help us reac poorer communities to roll out sensitisation activities.
A typical sensitisation activity usually takes about 1.5-2 hours and includes information about the snakes of Zambia and the relevant arera, how to avoid snakebites, dos and don’ts in snakebite cases and how to keep snakes away from your home.
