About Sepsis Alliance:

Sepsis Alliance, the first and leading sepsis organization in the U.S., seeks to save lives and reduce suffering by improving sepsis awareness and care. More than 1.7 million people are diagnosed with sepsis each year in the U.S. with more than 270,000 dying and over 50% of survivors experiencing post-sepsis syndrome and other lingering effects, including amputations. At Sepsis Alliance’s founding in 2003, only 19% of U.S. adults were aware of the term “sepsis.” After over ten years of educational efforts for the general public and healthcare providers through Sepsis.org, Sepsis Alliance Clinical Community, Sepsis Alliance Institute, and Sepsis Alliance Voices, awareness is at 65% with over 30,000 healthcare providers across the country having attended sepsis webinars and courses to elevate their practice and over 28 Sepsis Awareness Month state proclamations. Sepsis Alliance is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and a GuideStar Platinum Rated charity.

About Sepsis:

Sepsis is the body’s overwhelming response to infection, which can lead to tissue damage, organ failure, amputations, and death. Sepsis is the #1 cause of death in U.S. hospitals, killing 270,000 people each year in the U.S., or one person every two minutes. Sepsis kills more children than cancer and more adults than breast cancer, prostate cancer, and opioid overdoses, combined. It is the #1 cost for acute and skilled nursing care at $62 billion per year. Sepsis is the most severe complication of COVID-19 that is responsible for most deaths from this infection.

In the United States, differences in health and mortality are influenced by both socio-economic status and race/ethnicity. Black and “other nonwhite” individuals have nearly twice the incidence of sepsis as whites. Black people bear nearly twice the burden of sepsis deaths relative to the size of the Black population, as compared to white people, and sepsis deaths among American Indians/Alaskan Natives and Hispanics are also elevated as compared to white people. For Sepsis Alliance, health equity means eliminating preventable disparities in sepsis awareness, incidence, morbidity, and mortality.
