Statement on Maternal Sepsis definition is now available

The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued a new statement on maternal sepsis, which identifies sepsis as a leading cause of maternal deaths. This recognition has led to the launch of the Global Maternal and Neonatal Sepsis Initiative, which aims to reduce preventable maternal and neonatal deaths by sepsis. Their plan involves raising awareness about maternal and neonatal sepsis among health practitioners and the public, assessing the burden of sepsis on the global scale, and developing effective strategies to successfully manage it.
