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

Awareness

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.

Care Support

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 Skills

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.

GET INVOLVED

We recognize that volunteers play a vital role within our organization and that their contribution enables us to deliver our services effectively and efficiently.  We need people from all walks of life and all communities, who can bring their different skills and experiences to our work.

Partner with us

The manner in which we relate to, and cooperate with, locally based and international partner organisations is crucial to our own purpose of  educating and supporting people towards eradicating Sickle Cell disease in our society. We therefore call upon strategic partners for collaborations.
