GAMA Healthcare Australia Supports Sepsis Australia in the Fight Against Sepsis

Sepsis claims over 8,700 Australian lives every year, despite vaccines and antibiotics. This deadly infection often goes unnoticed until it becomes severe, causing extensive harm to the body. With over 55,000 affected annually across all age groups, sepsis has far-reaching consequences, including lasting effects and disabilities for survivors. Without timely recognition and treatment, sepsis can result in shock, organ failure, and even death.

GAMA Healthcare Australia’s CEO, Suzie Hammouche says, “that’s why we stand behind Sepsis Australia’s crucial initiative to reduce the impact of sepsis and to empower healthcare workers with a new standard that recognises sepsis as a medical emergency.”

Timna Kerr recently presented our contribution to Dr. Brett Abbenbroek, Program Manager of Sepsis Australia. Our contribution will go towards supporting lifesaving clinical guidance development, empowering healthcare professionals to detect, diagnose, and treat sepsis. It will also go towards establishing a crucial National Centre for Sepsis.

We thank the entire Sepsis Australia team for their unwavering dedication in the fight against sepsis. Together, we hope to make a significant difference in advancement the fight against sepsis.
