PNG Antivenom

PNG is evaluating plans to create a more efficient antivenom distribution system, as well as possibly outsourcing antivenom production to Central America or Asia. (News source.)

(Personally, I'd like to see North American antivenom production come down to $50 a vial, also, but I doubt that's going to happen with traditional methods. I've heard rumors of alternative methods, but don't know if anything is actually panning out.)
