Together with colleagues, we have today published a piece in Lancet in which we argue that the neglect of NTDs is that of people & not the condition. As such, investments focused primarily on anti-venom do not end the neglect of snakebite. There is a need for reorientation towards people being at the core of systems thinking approaches needed.
