Monday 13th September marks the 10th anniversary for World Sepsis Day. Sepsis effects around 47-50 million people per year, World Sepsis Day provides an opportunity for people worldwide to come together in the battle against Sepsis.
Around the world there is limited knowledge about Sepsis, it is poorly known that Sepsis can be prevented with a vaccination or clean care. Due to this continued lack of knowledge Sepsis is the number one preventable cause of death in the world.
“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.”
- 40% of Sespsis cases are children under 5
