More can be done to optimise outcomes in SCD

While progress has been made in SCD, there is more to be done

  • While improving quality of life is an important priority for people living with sickle cell disease (SCD),1 there remains an urgent need for effective, well-tolerated interventions that target the fundamental molecular basis of the disease2
  • All people living with SCD deserve access to a holistic care approach that addresses the multi-dimensional impact of the disease3

Optimising outcomes in SCD

  • Scheduled monitoring to screen for early signs of organ damage – including markers of haemolysis*4,5 – and chronic disease complications6,7
  • Early treatment initiation, in accordance with protocol and guidance6
  • A multi-disciplinary and patient-centric approach to management,7 including good transition planning6,8
