ERADICATE Sickle Cell Disorders
Who we are
Sickle Cell Disease Eradication Initiative (SCDEI) is a registered humanitarian Community Based Organisation, that is committed to eradicating Sickle Cell Disease through creating awareness and providing support to sickle cell warriors.
What we do
Raising awareness through health education on Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) within the community, pre-marital counselling and testing for Sickle Cell Diseases (SCD) using HB Genotype or any other recommended test for SCD. We also promote early screening for the new-born babies and other eradication strategies.
Patient care support through peer education, counseling, SCD support groups, special blood bank, and transfusion services for SCD patients. Strengthening the capacity of healthcare providers on effective management and follow-up of SCD patients. Advocacy for holistic management of SCD Patients.
Livelihoods improvement through vocational skills, financial literacy, entrepreneurship training, educational scholarships and grants. These strategies will help empower the sickle cell disease patients, their families, caregivers and other community members, for self-sustenance, community development and healthy living.
