The Sickle Cell Aid Foundation
The Sickle Cell Aid Foundation is a youth led non-profit, non-governmental organisation established to raise awareness about sickle cell disease and related health conditions. Nigeria records the highest incidences of the sickle cell gene and disease globally with 150,000 children born with SCD each year and 100,000 of them die before they are 5. This indicates that there is still a lot amiss regarding awareness and delivery of medical care to patients who have SCD, especially the young and indigent.
dmg Nigeria events has supported the Nigerian Business Coalition Against AIDS (NiBUCAA) for over five years now. We have been an active member of the coalition as we share NiBUCAA’s belief that the private sector should respond to the growing challenges of HIV/AIDS ensuring equal rights and
opportunities for employees infected or affected by the virus.
