In addition\, at least 2 million sepsis survivors per year suffe r from significant long term complications of the syndrome. Currently\, ad equate treatment facilities for most of these patients are missing. Despit e its high and increasing incidence sepsis is poorly recognized by health authorities\, health care workers\, policymakers\, lay people and media. T he implementation of effective measures for sepsis control and the develop ment of improved infection and sepsis diagnostics\, effective antimicrobia ls and sepsis specific therapies are urgently needed.\nGerman National Aca demy of Sciences Leopoldina\nFounded in 1652\, the Leopoldina brings toget her some 1\,500 outstanding scientists from about 30 countries. It is dedi cated to the advancement of science for the benefit of humankind and to sh aping a better future. In its role as the German National Academy of Scien ces\, the Leopoldina represents the German scientific community in interna tional committees. It offers unbiased scientific opinions on political and societal questions\, publishing independent studies of national and inter national significance. The Leopoldina promotes scientific and public debat e\, supports young scientists\, confers awards for scientific achievements \, conducts research projects\, and campaigns for the human rights of pers ecuted scientists.\nInvitation\nWe are pleased that this Leopoldina Sympos ium brings together highly ranked policy makers\, representatives of natio nal and international health care authorities\, most renowned clinical sci entists\, basic researchers\, representatives of highly innovative diagnos tic and pharmaceutic companies\, media and communication experts and sepsi s survivors to learn from each other about the most effective ways to:\n\n Increase vaccination rates and adherence to hygienic standards\nImprove pr eparedness in case of further pandemics\nIncrease awareness for sepsis amo ng lay people and health care providers\nFoster quality improvement projec ts in the hospital and outpatient setting\nImplement antibiotic stewardshi p programs and stop the misuse of antimicrobials\nOvercome the gap between resistance\, novel and effective antimicrobials\nEncourage the developmen t of cost-effective diagnostics and sepsis-specific therapeutics\nDevelop and provide adequate treatment concepts for sepsis sequelae\n\nWe are conv inced that the outcomes of this symposium will increase the understanding of the need for national and international efforts\, action plans and reso lutions to fight life-threatening infections and sepsis.
