Raising awareness, saving lives


Sepsis kills more people in New Zealand each year than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.

Sepsis is a life-threatening response to infection that kills one in five sufferers and causes lasting disability for survivors.

We put our funds to work to reduce sepsis harm by:

1) campaigning to increase community and hospital awareness

2) providing high quality training and clinical tools for healthcare professionals

3) supporting sepsis survivors

More about us

The NZ Sepsis Trust aims to save lives from sepsis and improve the lives of survivors. The Trust was formed when a team of doctors, nurses and quality improvement experts seeking to address deficiencies in sepsis care found that no national organization existed to bring sepsis into the public eye or to facilitate sepsis care and education.

In a country where rates of serious infection and diseases of poverty have been increasing for 20 years, we found this unacceptable and set out to create and advance a sepsis agenda for New Zealand.
