Alliance to tackle sepsis in Asia
Our researchers, whose landmark clinical trials have transformed intensive care globally, are addressing the under-recognised burden of sepsis through research and advocacy. In October 2018, they were instrumental in establishing the Asia Pacific Sepsis Alliance and the Bangkok Declaration – a call to action for a regional alliance to reduce the burden of sepsis following the WHO resolution making sepsis a global health priority in 2017.
Professor Simon Finfer, of The George Institute Australia is a member of the executive committee of the Global Sepsis Alliance which initiated the push for the WHO resolution.
