Background

Sustainable Development Goal No.3 (SDG-3) of the World Health Organisation seeks to ensure that Universal Health Coverage (UHC) for all becomes a reality, even in underserved population. Resource-limitation and lack of protocolised care have been identified as major causes of poor outcomes among the critically ill in low to middle income countries. The implementation of standard approach to sepsis recognition and sepsis management in Kenya is therefore key to improving the quality of care in our patients, irrespective of the healthcare facility they are managed in.

Objectives

  • Roll out a Modified Sepsis Pathway for low-resource setting
  • Officially launch the Kenya Sepsis Alliance to champion sepsis related activities locally.
