The international Surviving Sepsis Campaign (SSC) is a joint initiative of the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) and the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM), who are committed to reducing mortality and morbidity from sepsis and septic shock worldwide.

The SSC is led by multidisciplinary international experts committed to improving time to recognition and treatment of sepsis and septic shock, which are leading causes of death worldwide.
