What is Sepsis?

  • Sepsis is a global healthcare problem with a high risk of death
  • It impacts an estimated 30 million people per year worldwide
  • It is more common than a heart attack and claims more lives than any cancer
  • It may lead to shock, multiple organ failure, and death, especially if not recognized early and treated promptly
  • Sepsis can be prevented through education and early intervention

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 in 2010 with the aim to raise awareness for sepsis worldwide. Find out more about Sepsis by watching the Global Sepsis Alliance (GSA) “What is Sepsis?” video.
