Working with the WHO

The GSA is working closely with the World Health Organization in the worldwide fight against sepsis. 

 

Resolution on Sepsis

In May 2017, the World Health Assembly and the World Health Organization made sepsis a global health priority, by adopting a resolution to improve, prevent, diagnose, and manage sepsis. In collaboration with the GSA, the resolution was proposed by the German Ministry of Health and supported by Australia, Austria, Colombia, Costa Rica, Estonia, Ireland, Jamaica, Japan, Luxemburg, the Russian Federation, and Switzerland.
On the occasion, the GSA hosted the WHA Side Event on Sepsis, where Dr. Margaret Chan, then Director-General of the WHO gave some context on the resolution, embedded below. Learn more about the resolution on sepsis.
