Our vision is to reduce the burden of Sickle Cell Disease in Nigeria through awareness, care and research.
We raise awareness of SCD in Nigeria through key advocacy initiatives and programs. Our approach combines health education, genotype and genetic counselling. We hope to remove the biases and stigma around SCD through compassion and education. We are blessed with a multidisciplinary team of medical and community-oriented professionals, all working together to empower patients and their families to live better, healthier lives. We work with global institutions to provide cutting-edge research and SCD training to improve patient outcomes. Our efforts are made possible through the generosity of caring individuals, corporations, and foundations both locally and abroad.
