Professor Olu Akinyanju, Chairman Sickle Cell Foundation, Nigeria stressing a point that people with Sickle Cell disorder can live long

Just like the poor cannot be eradicated from the society so are people with sickle cell. Every measure taken by councellors to stop people with the traits of sickle cell from marrying each other have failed, says the Chairman of Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria, Professor
Olu Akinyanju. Since trying to reduce or stop people from giving birth to children with sickle cell through counselling has failed, Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria has decided to take the responsibility of making sure that people who live with the disorder can live a normal life if they use any of the sickle cell centres accredited by the Foundation for their regular check up. According to Dr. Ajibola Sanda who is the Director of Clinical Services, Sickle Cell Foundation, the service is free. All it will cost the patient with sickle cell disorder to get a qualitaive medical care is the transport fare to and from the clinic. Whether rich or poor, Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria has made life for people living with disorder worth it.

Dr. Ajibola Sanda Director of Clinical Services, Sickle Cell Foundation, says treament is free.
