1st World Sepsis Congress 2016

 1st World Sepsis Congress 2016

World Sepsis Day is a concept developed by the Global Sepsis Alliance, and operated as a collaborative effort with other organizations and individuals. Each year on September 13th, supporters all around the globe organize events to raise awareness for sepsis. 

The Global Sepsis Alliance (GSA), is a non-profit organization supporting the efforts of over 1 million caregivers in more than 70 countries as they seek to better understand and combat what many experts believe to be the leading cause of death worldwide: sepsis.

Sepsis is the common final pathway of all acute infections. 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.
