On September 9th, the WHO and the Global Sepsis Alliance (GSA) will co-host the free online congress “WSC Spotlight Sepsis. Pandemics, and Antimicrobial Resistance – Global Health Threats of the 21st Century”.

Through 6 distinctive sessions, the WSC Spotlight will give an overview of the global epidemiology and burden of sepsis and AMR, exploring innovative, novel, and cost-effective approaches for the prevention and treatment of both severe infections and antimicrobial resistance.

Speakers will discuss lessons learned and challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic and recent Ebola out­breaks, and how this has impacted the fight against sepsis and AMR.

The congress take place just 4 days before World Sepsis Day on 13 September 2020. It will bring together people (representatives of international and national healthcare authorities, NGOs, policymakers, patients, patient advocacy groups, clinical scientists, researchers) from across the world, who are committed to improve AMR and sepsis healthcare outcomes.

We are proud to announce that our collaborators Mike Sharland from St George’s, University of London and Ilaria Capua from Emerging Pathogens Institute, University of Florida will intervene during session 3.

Ilaria Capua will provide the  KeyNote on the One-Health-Approach to AMR and Global Health Threats, with Mike Sharland providing an overview of AMR in neonates and children with sepsis in low and middle-income countries.
