As a result, self-poisoning with pesticides has Become a significant medium for self harm was estimated that, death by self poisoning, especially with pesticides, accounts for 30% of all suicides globally. The overall suicide rate was 71.4 per 1,00,000 populations with highest burden among men. India is estimated to have the highest snakebite mortality in the world.

The Knowledge on epidemiology of poisoning and its changes is important to both emergency physicians and public health practitioners, but the patters of poisoning varies from country to country, within the country and over time, sometimes rapidly. Therefore, regional epidemiological data on poisoning are very helpful in planning rational use of resources for the prevention and management of poisoning and in targeting research.
