The following short contains scenes from the upcoming documentary "Minutes to Die, Snakebite: The World's Ignored Health Crisis"
Throughout the tropics, 125,000 people die each year from snakebite, with two to three times that number losing limbs, or suffering from long-term wound care and permanent disfigurement. Affecting mostly the rural poor, snakebite is considered to be one of the most neglected of all neglected tropical diseases.
The following footage, filmed in seven countries, is part of a larger documentary currently in final production, due for release in late early summer 2017. For more information on the film, visit lillianlincolnfoundation.org
