Sickle Cell and the Work Place


Sickle cell patients find it very tough to get jobs in general as I have been told. They say this is prevalent in private organisations especially because the patients must take time off to go to the hospital regularly or take time off work when sick quite often.

As a nation who has the highest number of people suffering from sickle cell, I believe employers could do well to employ people who can work well but perhaps have a health condition. This is so important as I consider that having those who may have one sickness or the other will help us to know more about various illnesses around us, like sickle cell.
