Join MEDITECH in recognizing World Sepsis Day

Commemorate the 10th World Sepsis Day by joining MEDITECH in signing the 2030 World Sepsis Declaration.

Today marks the 10th anniversary of World Sepsis Day, established by the Global Sepsis Alliance to educate the public and healthcare workers about sepsis. Commemorate this observance by joining MEDITECH in signing the 2030 World Sepsis Declaration, a worldwide call to action from the GSA.

The 2030 World Sepsis Declaration encourages all relevant stakeholders to commit to key targets, including incorporating systems for the early recognition of sepsis. The declaration states that by 2030 “at least 90 percent [of acute health systems and community and primary care organizations in participating countries] will have incorporated routine sepsis screening into the care of the acutely ill patient.”
