The Global Burden of Sepsis: World Sepsis Day, September 13

Sepsis is the leading killer of children worldwide, but this is not reflected in estimates of global mortality. For instance, the Global Burden of Disease study, a systematic analysis of global and regional mortality report “sepsis and infectious disorders of the newborn” representing 17% of neonatal deaths; however another 15% of neonatal deaths due to infections are not identified as death due to sepsis although sepsis is the final common pathway to death. The term “sepsis” is also excluded in the under 5 childhood deaths although 61% of deaths are due to infectious causes of which malaria (20.8%), diarrheal diseases (11.9%) and lower respiratory infections (12.4%) are the most common.
