Solar to the rescue Powering snakebite treatment centres [YouTube]

[Abstract] - In Nepal, an average of 20,000 cases of snakebite are reported annually, out of which 100 deaths are owing to attacks from venomous species. However, since many snakebite treatment centres across the country depend on unreliable sources of electricity, it is very difficult to run the equipment to preserve the anti-venom.

With the support of Alternative Energy Promotion Centre (AEPC)/UNDP's Rural Renewable Energy Programme (RERL) and GEF, solar PV systems have been installed in snakebite centres in Jhapa, Morang and Sunsari, ensuring timely and effective treatment and saving lives.
