World Sepsis Day 2017

WHO calls for prevention of the life-threatening condition, especially for maternal and neonatal sepsis:

12 September 2017:

Still today, Sepsis presents as a life-threatening condition. It can arise when the body’s response to infection causes injury to its tissues and organs. Infections often complicate underlying diseases; sepsis is a final common pathway leading to death from communicable or non-communicable diseases. If sepsis develops during pregnancy, during or after giving birth, or in context of abortion, we speak of maternal sepsis. Sepsis in a newborn baby is called neonatal sepsis.
