Synergizing Global Actions for Sepsis, AMR and PPPR for Attaining Health Related SDGs
High Level Side Event on the Margins of UNGA78 engaging distinguished Speakers and Moderators – Global Health Leaders, Politicians, Experts, Representatives of Academia, Patients Organizations and Civil Society.
The 7 co-sponsor organizations of the meeting have been concerned with inadequate political commitment and investments to combat the global burden of Sepsis – the leading cause of deaths globally – that annually accounts for 50 million cases and claims lives of 11 million children and adults.
In this respect, the High-Level UNGA78 Side Event intends to:
Consolidate the latest evidence on the Global Burden of Sepsis and reaffirm the urgency of action for averting millions of preventable deaths and disabilities in children and adults.
Reinvigorate political commitment to the Global Sepsis Response as a fundamental step towards attainment of health-related SDGs.
Position the Global Sepsis Response and the enforcement of WHO 2017 Sepsis Resolution as critical policy areas in the ongoing high-level dialogue and negotiations on the Universal Health Coverage, AMR and the Pandemic Accord.
Reach a consensus on the need to synergize global and national policies and actions on Sepsis, AMR and PPPR for attainment of health-related SDGs, and
Present the Berlin Declaration adopted at the Central World Sepsis Day on September 12, 2023 calling WHO and its Member States for stocktaking the national and global responses to the 2017 WHA Sepsis Resolution and for elaborating the 2nd Sepsis Resolution for submission to the World Health Assembly.
