World Sepsis Day 2023 – Continuing to fight against sepsis

Megan Reilly

On World Sepsis Day, the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (ACSQHC) recognise efforts across the globe to strive for better sepsis care, and to reduce the impact of this life-threatening illness.

Every year 55,000 Australians are diagnosed with sepsis and more than 8,700 lose their lives. The Commission is committed to reducing the devastating impact of sepsis and improving outcomes for survivors.

The Commission continues to work in partnership with The George Institute for Global Health and Sepsis Australia to improve the awareness and recognition of sepsis through the National Sepsis Program.
