The African Research Collaboration on Sepsis (ARCS), African Sepsis Alliance (ASA), and African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) have joined forces to publish a sepsis fact sheet for stakeholders in Africa.

The document highlights what sepsis is,  causes, burden and benefits of addressing sepsis in Africa. Africa has the youngest population in the world. It also has the highest burden of disease of infections. Everybody in Africa deserves to be able to survive sepsis. Please download and share the fact sheet with healthcare workers, stakeholders, and policy makers.


We also recommend this video by our friends from the World Sepsis Day Movement, explaining sepsis in 3 minutes:
