ARCS is creating sustainable partnerships between research and clinical organisations, Ministries of Health, non-government organizations, and the commercial sector.

Using this network, we have 4 aims: 

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
4) to test novel clinical trial platforms to answer key sepsis questions for Africa

Jamie Rylance and Shevin Jacob are the co-directors of the programme and are based in Malawi and Uganda respectively.
