We are a non-profit movement working to reduce sepsis cases
by 20% until 2020.
Sepsis: Prevent it. Spot it. Treat it - beat it.
Sepsis is a major cause of death worldwide, but thousands of lives can be saved by increasing the awareness of healthcare authorities and the general public on the need for basic avoidance measures and fast life-saving recognition of symptoms.
Your donations are crucial in helping us spread the word.
World Sepsis Day, an initiative of the Global Sepsis Alliance (GSA), was founded by a caring group of non-profit organisations, and is a registered charity (no.1142803 / UK) seeking to reduce the incidence of sepsis by increasing public and professional awareness.
Give us your support by making a one-time donation.Your unearmarked contribution allows us the flexibility to allocate funds toward communicating sepsis recognition, mobilising an international network of supporters, and lobbying policymakers on sepsis issues.

How to prevent sepsis
Sepsis is always caused by an infection, most often by bacteria, but sometimes by fungi or protozoa (such as malaria). That means that preventing infection is one of the best ways to prevent sepsis.
