  • With the focus of implementing action & providing support in Africa, CHAIR hopes to collaborate wiith experts in all health related fields.


Any sickle cell related activities are delivered under the project title, SCORE

We started as a group of professionals who wanted to undertake and apply research findings in a practical way to address the causes, management, and treatment especially for SCD in Africa. This would also extend to strengthening health services to improve the quality of care and support for those living with chronic illness.
