Our Mission

The mission of Global Sickle Cell Alliance is to improve the quality of life for all affected by, or at risk for, sickle cell disease and trait and related disorders. 
We address many of the challenges that have a significant effect on health status and well-being of the global sickle cell community, including education, apathy and lack of newborn screening and follow up programs’ lack of support for people living with sickle cell disease, lack of health insurance, poverty, mistrust of health care professionals, attitudes of care providers, access to quality services, environmental factors and individual nutritional behaviors (diet) and physical activity.
In addition, GLoSCA will champion best local, national and global practices in eliminating health disparities as touching upon sickle cell within the local cultural and spiritual context. GLoSCA fosters communication and true collaboration among all stakeholders at the local, national and international level to improve quality of life of individuals with sickle cell disease.
