The Antigua and Barbuda Sickle Cell Association (ABSCA) in its present form operates since 2010. It is a non-profit organization with the explicit goal of improving the lives of Sickle Cell patients and their families. Our mission is to improve care for patients, educate patients, health care providers and general public about the condition and its management, to establish a statistic data base, to counsel patients and persons carrying the Sickle Trait.
ABSCA has only about 20 members, consisting mainly of persons who have first-hand experience with SCD, be it as a parent or as a patient. ABSCA’s president, Dr. Edda Hadeed, is a pediatrician and neonatologist who joined the association end of 2013. Dr. Hadeed manages children with SCD on a regular basis and collaborates with Dr. R. Dickerhoff, Duesseldorf University, a renowned expert in the management of SCD.
