The Excellence in Pediatrics Institute - improving children's health globally

EIP LogoThe Excellence in Pediatrics Institute is the international pediatric community that unites a network of 60,000 pediatric health care providers around the world to improve child health and healthcare globally. The Institute’s goal is to empower all pediatric healthcare providers with the latest practical skills, expert advice and peer-led guidance - as well as uniting pediatricians to push for and implement health policy improvements through targeted campaigns and initiatives.

EIP's educational mission is achieved through a number of allied approaches – including: hosting the annual Excellence in Pediatrics Conference (now in its 8th edition with attendance from 1100+ pediatricians from 80+ countries), running Educate the Educators programs to train pediatricians at the grassroots level, and hosting a Free-to-access Online Resource Library (over 150 hours of webinars and e-learnings available).

Current campaigns are focused on improving: Vaccination Uptake (HPV, Meningitis, Influenza), Early Detection and Referral of Rare Diseases (Metabolic and Pulmonary) and Chronic Conditions (Juvenile Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease). Each is designed for current need, but typically includes: The formation of international Expert Steering Committees, surveys and mapping reports, hosting of multi-stakeholder Policy Focus Group meetings, the formation and implementation of national teams and action plans.

Generations United

GU_New Logo

Generations United’s mission is to improve the lives of children, youth, and older adults through intergenerational collaboration, public policies, and programs for the enduring benefit of all. For 3 decades, Generations United has been the catalyst for policies and practices stimulating cooperation and collaboration among generations, evoking the vibrancy, energy, and sheer productivity that result when people of all ages come together. We believe that we can only be successful in the face of our complex future if generational diversity is regarded as a national asset and fully leveraged.

Valuing Vaccinations Across Generations is an awareness campaign launched by Generations United in partnership with The Gerontological Society of America and the American Academy of Pediatrics. This campaign bridges the importance of immunizations within segmented groups into an intergenerational conversation within families and among generations. It is an international effort that promotes vaccinations through a life span approach by providing tools and resources to encourage intergenerational conversations. Beginning in the United States, the campaign will expand to other countries in late 2016. The campaign is supported by Pfizer.

 

 

The Global Sepsis Alliance

GSA Logo Color New

The Global Sepsis Alliance is a non-profit charity organisation with the aim to raise awareness of sepsis worldwide and reduce sepsis deaths by 20 % by 2020. To achieve these goals, the GSA has established World Sepsis Day in 2012 and World Sepsis Congress in 2016, fostering our aspiration to bring knowledge about sepsis to all parts of the world, easily accessible and free of charge.

Sepsis is one of the most underestimated health risks. It affects more than 30 million people worldwide each year; 6 to 8 million with a fatal outcome. Surviving patients often suffer for years from late complications.

This is all the more disturbing as sepsis incidence could be considerably reduced by some simple preventive measures such as vaccination and improved adherence to hygiene standards, early recognition and optimized treatment. The main danger of sepsis results from a lack of knowledge about it.

The members of the GSA and the Supporters of the World Sepsis Day Movement have recognised the need to elevate public, philanthropic and governmental awareness and understanding of sepsis and to accelerate collaboration among researchers, clinicians, associated working groups and those dedicated to supporting them. For this reason, they initiated the Global Sepsis Alliance in 2010. Together with supporting organizations from across the globe, we are united in one common goal: Stop sepsis – save lives!
