To create the highly needed sepsis awareness, the Global Sepsis Alliance started the World Sepsis Day Campaign and set up the World Sepsis Declaration. The campaign – which is embedded in our World Sepsis Day movement – aims at educating medical professionals, informing policymakers, and creating awareness among the general public.
World Sepsis Day
World Sepsis Day is an initiative of the Global Sepsis Alliance and its founding members, all of whom are
non-profit organizations. Each year on 13 September, various activities take place around the world to raise awareness of sepsis.
One of the WSD highlights in 2016 was the 1st World Sepsis Congress. www.worldsepsiscongress.org
