Nowadays the accidents by venomous animals continue a grave problem of public health in Brazil, so much by the number of cases recorded, as much as by the gravity presented, being able to drive to the death or heavy sequels. In 2011 alone, more than 139 000 accidents with 293 deaths occurred. According to data recently released by Ministério da Saúde - Secre- taria de Vigilância em Saúde of Brazilian Government. In the past ten years, there was an increase of 157% in accidents with venomous animals. In 2011 alone, more than 139 000 accidents with 293 deaths occurred. In Brazil, during the next 24 hours, [274] 380 persons bitten by a venomous animal can have serious health injury or live loss. As the human population expands and the habitat for animals is reduced, accidents involving venomous animals continue to grow. WHO (World Health Organization) Neglected tropical diseases, the researchers estimate that 421,000 envenomings and 20,000 deaths occur

MÉDIA ANUAL DE AGRAVOS - SINAN — Sistema de Informação de Agravos de Notificação (see statistics http://www.cobrasbrasileiras.com.br/estatisticas- acidentes-peconhentos.html) There is mounting support from Brazilian hospitals and health offi- cials that by helping people better identify, elude or handle venomous ani- mals, lives will be saved! The Brazilian Snake Project will produce vitally needed communi- cation tools to be used by public health programs including: a web site, book, DVD, child’s book and a photo exposition to build public awareness. This information will be developed and communicated in Portuguese, Spanish and English. The tools will be used throughout public schools and the medical and veterinary community in Brazil. Specific project objectives include: 1 Immediate identification of poisonous vs. non-poisonous vipers, snakes, spiders, centipedes, and scorpions. This information is of vital importance when determining which serum to be given to the victim. 2 Define accident handling procedures for venomous animals.
