National Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month is a time to acknowledge the challenges faced by Americans with sickle cell disease (SCD) and to reaffirm our commitment to increasing the quality, affordability, and accessibility of different treatment options.
SCD is an inherited red blood cell disorder that is most prevalent among those who have ancestors from sub-Saharan Africa and certain regions of South and Central America. In the United States, SCD occurs in 1 out of every 365 African-American births and 1 out of every 16,300 Hispanic-American births.
Beginning in early childhood, people with SCD experience a lifetime of crippling pain, challenging disabilities, and often premature death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates medical expenses of children with SCD average between $11,000 and $14,000, with nearly 40 percent of these patients requiring at least one hospital stay.
