dc.description.abstractInstituto Butantan (São Paulo, Brazil) and Instituto Clodomiro Picado (San José, Costa Rica) are public institutions devoted to scientific and technological research, production of antivenoms and other immunobiologicals, and a variety of public health interventions aimed at confronting the problem of snakebite envenoming in their countries and elsewhere. In the context of the 120th anniversary of Instituto Butantan, this work describes the historical developments in the relationship between these institutions, which has evolved into a solid cooperation platform in science, technology, and public health. The relationship between Instituto Butantan and Costa Rica started early in the 20th century, with the provision of Brazilian antivenoms to Costa Rica through the coordination of Instituto Butantan and the health system of Costa Rica, with the leadership of Clodomiro Picado Twight. After the decade of 1980, a prolific collaborative network has been established between Instituto Butantan and Instituto Clodomiro Picado (founded in 1970) in the areas of scientific and technological research in pharmacology, biochemistry, experimental pathology, immunology, and public health, as well as in antivenom development, production, preclinical evaluation, and quality control. In addition, both institutions have played a key role in the integration of regional efforts in Latin America to create a network of public institutions devoted to antivenom production and quality control, in close coordination with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). This long-standing partnership is an example of a highly productive south-south cooperation under a frame of solidarity and public well-being.pt_BR
