SCAF Database for Persons Living with Sickle Cell Disorder
On the 27th of February 2020, Nigeria recorded its first confirmed case of COVID-19. Since then, there has been an exponential increase in confirmed cases all over the country. As an organization whose major focus is on ensuring access to quality health care and welfare of persons living with Sickle Cell Disorder (SCD), the Sickle Cell Aid Foundation (SCAF) is committed to ensuring that persons with SCD are protected during this pandemic.
Globally, It has been recognized that persons living with SCD are particularly vulnerable, with a higher risk of severe complications than the general populace. It should also be noted that Nigeria has been cited as a country with the highest population of persons living with SCD. Various statistics have proven that over 150,000 babies are born with SCD every year. A significant percentage of them live below the poverty line.
Recognising this challenge and the potential impact of COVID-19 on persons with SCD in Nigeria, SCAF seeks to collate a database of patients with SCD across the country. Our aim is to ensure the welfare of those living with SCD during the pandemic and beyond. It is our hope that this database will provide a platform for the government and other stakeholders to track, monitor and cater for persons living with SCD. It is also our desire that this will be used for research purpose in Nigeria.
We will also use this database to identify indigent persons and provide them with free essential medications and basic supplies during the imposed quarantine period across the country. In addition, we will partner with Mental health organizations to provide access to platforms for emotional and mental health support for persons with SCD on the database.
