Sepsis Stiftung


The Sepsis Stiftung, a foundation with headquarters in Berlin, is a member of the Global Sepsis Alliance, an umbrella organization of more than 100 member institutions worldwide with the mission of providing leadership to reduce the burden of sepsis. Approximately 50 million people come down with sepsis every year, with approximately 13,7 million succumbing to the illness. Nevertheless, sepsis is practically unknown to the wider public. With greater awareness, many sepsis-triggered deaths and cases of illness in Germany could be prevented. It is, thus, the overarching goal of the Stiftung to reduce the number of deaths associated with the illness, to educate government officials, healthcare workers, and civil society in pursuit of the mission to become a driver for change in the health sector.
