New Sepsis Definitions: Our Statement

The mission of the Global Sepsis Alliance (GSA) is to provide opportunities for and be supportive of global interaction, such that the Global Community might address with equal commitment and vigor the needs of children and adults with sepsis in both the developed and developing world. It aims to provide the ability to speak with one united voice to offer consistent, easily understood messaging to governments, philanthropists and the public, and to easily identify and access resources and people of common purpose and intent within and without the scientific community with the goal of reducing the global burden of sepsis.

With the above mission in mind the GSA welcomes the increased academic interest in sepsis generated in response to the reports of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) and the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) Task Force Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock (Sepsis-3).1-3
