Uganda is set to establish sickle cell clinics in different health facilities throughout the country in an effort to reduce the sickle cell prevalence.

The clinics will carry out new born screenings and heamococo vaccination.

According to Dr. Anthony Mbonye, the biggest burden is that most people go late for sickle cell screenings which the project is intended to reduce.

Uganda will hold World Sickle Cell day celebrations on 20th June in Bundibugyo district.
