Sickle cell research
Nigeria leads the world in the number of cases of Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). Some interventions have proven beneficial toward improving outcomes, especially in Nigeria and that includes treatment with a drug called Hydroxycarbamide. OFNC is supporting the improvement of outcomes of those living with SCD in keeping with its mission to provide relief of persons in conditions of need, hardship, or distress.
