About Sickle Cell Disease
Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is an inherited blood disorder, characterized primarily by chronic anemia and periodic pain episodes.
It affects millions of people throughout the world, particularly those with ancestry from: Africa, South or Central America (especially Panama), the Caribbean islands, Mediterranean countries (such as Turkey, Greece, and Italy), India and Saudi Arabia. Despite the massive numbers of individuals afflicted by SCD, it still holds the misnomer of the “forgotten disease”.
