Spearheading change on World Sickle Cell Day

This year on World Sickle Cell Day, a new report is drawing attention to the challenges of living with sickle cell disease (SCD) and the urgent need for change in patient care—particularly in the emergency department (ED).

Although SCD was identified more than 100 years ago, there has been little advancement when it comes to treatment and management, as well as overall understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease itself.

Recognizing the critical need for change, Pfizer Rare Disease brought together the Sickle Cell Disease Council For CHANGE (CFC), a group of more than 20 national SCD advocates, patients, and experts to tackle pressing issues facing people with SCD today. The CFC is focused on improving quality of patient care along with enhancing education and advocacy for the SCD community.
