Sickle Cell Community Consortium

The Sickle Cell Community Consortium (SCCC) was founded in Februrary of 2014 to provide a platform to unify, strengthen and increase the visibility of sickle cell community-based organizations (CBOs) throughout the country. This Consortium is founded on the belief that a “house divided against itself cannot stand” and a commitment to create an outstanding model of community and patient engagement. We have developed a unified entity, modeled after the U.N. where the individual needs of each CBO can be identified and addressed as a unit, while maintaining the autonomy of each individual organization.

SCCC is not a CBO, nor does it seek to replace the actions or activities of existing CBOs. Sickle cell disease CBOs exist to address the needs of the sickle cell community. The Consortium exists to address the needs of the CBOs. Our mission is to assist the CBOs in identifying the needs of their patient population, to aggressively seek funding to address those needs, provide infrastructure support and a platform for collaboration and cooperation between individual CBOs, governmental agencies and pharmaceutical and corporate stakeholders.
