Welcome to SICKLE CELL NEWS (formerly the Sickle Cell Journal) – a quarterly news-magazine founded and published in Africa. Our vision is to be the world’s best-known resource magazine for the world’s most commonly inherited blood disorder, whose headquarters, in turn, is Africa.

We intend to teach, inform and help reduce the burden of sickle cell on family and society.

We have designated everyday as World Sickle Cell Awareness Day.
