The Role of Caregivers in Sickle Cell Disease and the Impact of COVID-19

We are excited to present our Seventh Annual World Sickle Cell Day Event – The Role of Caregivers and the Impact of COVID-19. The importance of caregivers in ensuring the health and wellbeing of patients is critical; people with sickle cell disease depend on their spouses, family members, friends, and church and community members to help them through the tough times they face. However, caregivers also need support, so they can continue to be effective.

Further, the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic has strained the ability for caregivers to tend to their loved ones due to social distancing restrictions, rules against visitors in health care facilities, etc.
