Become Involved

We are at the early stages of developing the African Sepsis Alliance. We are currently looking for seed funding, partners and developing an action plan. To become involved, please contact us directly.

Our main objectives are to:

  • Reduce paediatric and maternal mortality

  • Improve early recognition of sepsis

  • Improve education and public awareness

  • Translate research knowledge into practice

  • Reduce the impact of infections in Africa

  • Use data to improve care for sepsis

  • Focus on quality improvement in sepsis

  • Improve post-sepsis care

  • Build infrastructure and capacity, including for research

  • Reduce impact of sepsis on vulnerable groups

We intend to achieve this by focusing on the following key areas:

  • Run an advocacy and sepsis awareness campaign including use of the Kampala Declaration
  • Work with the WHO to operationalize the WHO Resolution on Sepsis
  • Develop practical guidelines with the WHO and other stakeholders
  • Improve recording of vital signs and infection control
  • Improve vaccination rates, antibiotic stewardship, and reduce antimicrobial resistance
  • Describe the burden of disease, key challenges for sepsis in Africa and the gaps
  • Identify, test and share improvement ideas including “exemplar sepsis improvement countries”
  • Identify and use patient and public advocates in everything we do
  • Generate collaborative research and innovation projects with all key stakeholders
  • Generate funding to run the alliance and projects.
