If you live in Papua, we want to strongly encourage you to learn about what type of venomous snakes are present and the actions you need to take if someone is bitten. The steps are simple, yet very different from the first aid applied to snake bites in many other parts of the world.
You can be empowered by adding to your knowledge and being prepared. Sit back and enjoy this powerful presentation by Fiona Webb (a nurse mid-wife). She grew up in the outback of Australia with many of these deadly snakes and now lives in Papua where the snakes sometimes come to visit her in their yard.
