Global Sepsis Alliance
The Global Sepsis Alliance is a non-profit charity organization with the mission to provide global leadership to reduce the worldwide burden of sepsis. The GSA was founded at the Merinoff Symposium, which was hosted by the Feinstein Institute, in 2010 with the aim to raise awareness for sepsis worldwide and reduce sepsis deaths by 20% by 2020.
As of today, more than 100 organizations from all over the world have joined the Global Sepsis Alliance.
World Sepsis Day
World Sepsis Day is a favorable moment to increase public awareness for this poorly acknowledged health care disaster, but also to show support and solidarity with the millions of people who lost their loved ones, or, as sepsis survivors, suffer from long-term consequences of sepsis. World Sepsis Day is a great opportunity to remind the public, media, national, and international health care authorities, health care providers, and health care workers, policy makers, and the governments that there is an urgent need to increase and improve education on the facility, regional, national, and international level. The easiest way to support World Sepsis Day: Share the link for signing the World Sepsis Declaration with your colleagues, families, friends, and everyone that should be informed about sepsis.
