Sickle Cell Disease Treatment Centers Map

Email   Phone   Web  

GSCDN organization brings together the leading SCD researchers and clinicians from high-, middle-, and low-income countries to form the Global Sickle Cell Disease Network (GSCDN). The GSCDN works to: – develop research studies that will help clarify the scope of the problem of SCD around the world – determine the most effective, efficient ways to treat SCD, especially in low-income settings – implement solutions that fit the communities they serve – establish clinical care and research coordinating centers within Africa through which the work described above can take place. These centers will facilitate local and regional training, infrastructure development, needs assessments and priority setting. The GSCDN is a wonderful example of researchers and clinicians from around the world working together to bring about real change that will not only have a positive impact on children born with SCD, but on whole communities and regions.
