September 13 is World Sepsis Day
Join the Fight Against Sepsis & COVID-19
September 13 is World Sepsis Day, an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against sepsis. Sepsis kills 11 million people every year yet, depending on country and education, is known only to 7- 50% of people.
We created the BC Sepsis Network to support the sepsis improvement work of health care providers across the province. In honour of World Sepsis Day on September 13, we're working alongside network members to plan activities to increase sepsis awareness among patients, families and caregivers.
