Today is the Day! Together, We Can Stop Maternal Sepsis!

GLOSS, the Global Maternal Sepsis Study, has started!

Over the course of this week, the study will prompt a massive coordinated data collection effort in approximately 500 healthcare facilities in 47 low- and middle income countries and 7 high income countrieacross the world. 

After this week we will be able to better quantify the true burden and assess the current management of maternal sepsisaround the world. The study will look at how women with infection during pregnancy, childbirth or postpartum, or post-abortion are identified and treated in participating hospitals. 

Below are some photos of the teams getting ready for today.
