In resource-limited countries, many healthcare facilities lack of systems that enable healthcare workers to judge the severity of illness, especially within emergency departments. The resulting delays in treatment disproportionately affect young children under five with severe infections, particularly if these infections lead to sepsis – the number one cause of death in this age group. Smart Triage is a digital platform that makes it easier for frontline healthcare workers with limited training to identify critically ill children, ensuring they receive timely and appropriate care. This powerful tool has been designed for, and in collaboration with, health workers working in remote and developing parts of the world.

Action on Sepsis operates on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples — xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We invite everyone to reflect on the traditional territories and land that they currently work and live on.
