Dear Supporters and Friends of World Sepsis Day,

Today, we are glad to inform you that Achim Steiner, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme and designated new director of the Oxford Martin School, made his very inspiring keynote lecture held at the German National Academy of Sciences meeting “Sepsis – The Challenges of Science, Politics and Society” available to all of us.

In his keynote address,  he clearly states that tackling sepsis is crucial to more than half of the 17 goals of the 2030 agenda for sustainable development!
This agenda was adopted by the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015 and aims to end poverty and hunger, improve health and education, make cities more sustainable, combat climate change and protect oceans and forests.

You can access Achim Steiner’s full keynote lecture here:

We highly encourage you to share this link with your families, friends, and co-workers!

Thank you for your continued support and warm regards from Germany,

Prof. Konrad Reinhart, MD, ML
