Sickle Cell Culbs Scheme (SCCS)
This commenced with the creation of Sickle Cell Clubs in 20 Public Secondary schools across the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. Indicating that we worked with schools across the various area councils in Abuja. In participation with the Federal Ministry of Heath, Ministry of Education and the FCT Secondary Education board we were able to commence this scheme.
Students at various schools have also been tested (with parental consent) to asertain their genotype. Those found to have sickle cell are provided with regular drugs and those from indigent homes are placed on scholarships.
