Our mission at Dr.SickleCell is to improve the health of millions of people living with sickle cell disease, particularly in Africa, with a strategic focus on disadvantaged circumstances, by challenging the status quo and using innovative approaches to eliminate perceived barriers to quality care using an integrated approach implemented through informed strategies and effective partnerships. We work to further prevention and control, while fostering collaborations.
Dr. SickleCell is a dynamic and unique non-profit dedicated to finding and implementing innovative and informed approaches to changing the narrative on sickle cell disease by working to improve access to care, convening the broader sickle cell community, developing capacity across health systems and increasing advocacy for needed impact.
We work to ensure impact by reaching the people and communities with the greatest needs. Through our programs and partnerships we will address unmet health needs in children, women and under-served communities in Nigeria and Africa at large by developing and implementing innovative people-first and impact-oriented solutions.
