A World Free of Sepsis

Sepsis is the final common pathway to death from most infectious diseases worldwide.

It arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. It may lead to shock, multiple organ failure, and death, especially if not recognized early and treated promptly. 

It affects about 30 million people per year; of whom 6 to 9 million die. Many surviving patients suffer from the consequences for the rest of their lives.

The Global Sepsis Alliance was founded in 2010 with the aim to raise awareness for sepsis worldwide and reduce sepsis deaths by 20 % by 2020.
