The African Sepsis Alliance
The African Sepsis Alliance is a non-profit organization founded in 2016 as a collaboration of African countries and international professional bodies, dedicated to improving outcomes from sepsis. Our message is simple: sepsis is the most important cause of severe illness in Africa and must be prioritised in order to save lives and reduce suffering
£10 from your course fee will be donated to their programme of activities to reduce the impact of sepsis (mortality and suffering) by bringing about large scale improvements in sepsis awareness, education, care, research and funding in Africa.
