On October 4th, 2018, the African Sepsis Alliance will hold the 2nd African Sepsis Symposium in Diani, Kenya, in collaboration with the African Federation of Critical Care Nurses and the Global Sepsis Alliance. The African Sepsis Alliance is a collaboration of over 15 African countries and international professional bodies working together to prevent sepsis and improve care in Africa. Everybody in Africa has a right to survive sepsis and we provide leadership to reduce mortality and suffering for sepsis in Africa. Africa bears a disproportionate burden of preventable deaths from sepsis globally.

Over 400 local and international experts, healthcare workers, and policy makers are expected to attend the symposium in Diani. Participants will review and discuss sepsis prevention, recognition, and management efforts in Africa. This years’ multidisciplinary symposium will focus on paediatric sepsis, antimicrobial resistance, and stewardship. The Kenya Sepsis Alliance will also be launched at the event. The exciting conference program can be found below. If you would like to attend or join our growing list of prestigious sponsors for the symposium, please contact Wangari Siika, Chair of the local organizing committee, or Emmanuel Nsutebu, Chair of the African Sepsis Alliance. Please join us and help make a difference in Africa!
