Sickle Cell Association of Uganda

P.O. Box 22805
Kampala, Uganda, East Africa
Phone   Web  

Sickle Cell Association of Uganda is now the only grass roots organisation representing the interests of patients in Uganda. They strive to change the perception that the majority of the population has in Uganda about the disease – that those who have this disease are worthless people in society, worth stigmatising and discriminating against. Through counselling and education they strive to improve the lives of these families.

Mission Statement:
Empower the masses (general public) about sickle cell disease so that the occurrence of the disease, and its complications, can be reduced. This will enable individuals to have a purposeful and meaningful life through understanding the principles of healthy living.
