In 2008 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted a resolution that determined Sickle Cell Disease a public health problem and one of the world’s foremost genetic disease. The result was that June 19th was declared as World Sickle Cell Day to heightened awareness, activism, diagnosis and management of SCD around the world.
