Welcome to SICKLE CELL NEWS (formerly the Sickle Cell Journal) – a quarterly news-magazine founded and published in Africa. Our vision is to be the world’s best-known resource magazine for the world’s most commonly inherited blood disorder, whose headquarters, in turn, is Africa. We intend to teach, inform and help reduce the burden of sickle cell on family and society.
With many having the sickle cell gene unaware, the need for a dedicated magazine on sickle cell disorder cannot be overstated … Directly or indirectly, Sickle Cell is believed to affect more than 100 million people worldwide.
We have designated every month as World Sickle Cell Awareness Month. If you are visiting this site for the first time, you are most welcome.
