African Research Collaboration on Sepsis (ARCS)

The African Research Collaboration on Sepsis (ARCS) is a collaborative programme funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) under the Global Health Research Programme. ARCS aims to improve the survival and quality of life of sepsis patients using relevant innovations at the individual and health system level, through multidisciplinary applied health research. Running from 2018 to 2021, ARCS operates within three African countries, Malawi, Gabon and Uganda. ARCS brings together African and UK expertise across the applied health spectrum to tackle sepsis, learning from the UK’s experience in reducing sepsis mortality.

Project Overview


Creating sustainable partnerships between research and clinical organisations, Ministries of Health, non-government organisations, and commercial sectors, ARCS is establishing a network across the three counties and focuses on the following four objectives:

  1. to deliver high-quality sepsis research training;
  2. to establish commonly agreed sepsis care quality indicators for Africa which could form the bedrock of monitoring and evaluation programmes;
  3. to pilot test innovative sepsis care interventions and;
  4. to test the feasibility of novel clinical trial platforms for answering key sepsis questions for Africa.
