Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a debilitating, devastating condition, with lifelong and life-ending complications that progressively erode the potential of patients and their families.1,2

Sickle cell anaemia has numerous physical and psychosocial effects in people with SCD, many of which are hidden from sight. Here you can explore this hidden damage and its profound implications for people living with SCD:

  • Pathophysiology provides an overview of the molecular mechanisms that underlie SCD, including the process of haemolytic anaemia
  • Patient journey explores the physical and psychosocial impact of SCD throughout life
  • Burden looks at the economic implications of SCD for healthcare systems
