An international alliance with experts from the United States, Mexico and Africa has come together to address the issue with a project to improve access to quality antivenoms and to save lives in regions with high snakebite incidence. "The world lacks sufficient antivenom for those who need it most; most doctors lack training to use it; and the per-dose cost to provide antivenom in low quantities is extremely high," said Leslie Boyer, MD, director of the UA Venom Immunochemistry, Pharmacology and Emergency Response (VIPER) Institute. Correcting the problem will require simultaneous effort by physicians, patients, ministries of health and drug companies, she said.

Arizona could lose $46.8 million in federal public health funding over the next five years via a cut included in the House Republican health bill, likely forcing local health departments to reduce or cut public health programs. Dr. Daniel Derksen, professor and director of the Arizona Center for Rural Health, said it is critical to fund public health efforts such as preventing the spread of the Zika virus. Lack of funding now could lead to higher health and fiscal costs down the road. "When somebody has a child with microcephaly, the consequences are lifelong," Derksen said. "It is very expensive care and has devastating consequences in terms of brain development and physical disabilities."
