Addressing the burden of snakebite in India: A policy and systems analyses
- Global mortality of snakebite envenoming between 1990 and 2019 (Nature Communications 2022)
- Outcomes in intervention research on snakebite envenomation: a systematic review ( F1000 Research 2022)
- The impact of climate change on the burden of snakebite: Evidence synthesis and implications for primary healthcare (Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care 2022)
- Mitigating the chronic burden of snakebite: turning the tide for survivors (The Lancet 2021)
- Burden and risk factors for snakebite in India: protocol for a systematic review ( F1000 Research 2021)
- Interventions for the management of snakebite envenoming: An overview of systematic reviews [PloS Neglected Tropical Diseases 2020] – research describing the evidence base of different treatment modalities for treatment of snakebite.
- Mental health conditions after snakebite: a scoping review [ BMJ Global Health 2020] – research detailing the high prevalence of depression and PTSD in several studies and the complete lack of studies to understand mental health conditions after snakebite.
- Quality of WHO guidelines on snakebite: the neglect continues [ BMJ Global Health 2018] -Guidelines are crucial pivot for action to decrease mortality and morbidity but the WHO guidelines on snakebite are of poor methodological quality, We call on the HWO to ensure development of evidence-based snakebite guidelines as is being done for other diseases.
- Problems with treating snake bite in India [Link BMJ 2016] – An Indian model for managing snakebite needs developed. Much needs to be done for snakebite patients, who lack a political voice, and it should begin with accepting, not denying the problems.
- Snakebite: a forgotten problem [ BMJ – 2013] – India has the worst snakebite problem in the world, largely affecting poor people and children from rural communities. The lack of political voice might explain a lot.
