World Sickle Cell Disease Day, 19 June 2021, is an opportunity to increase public knowledge and understanding of hereditary disease, which is still poorly understood, although it is very common in the Caribbean and has been recognised as a public health priority by the United Nations since 2008.

As every year, the medical community, researchers, patient associations and all stakeholders  involved in sickle cell disease are organising events around this date in order to raise public awareness.

You will find below an overview of the events organised in Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica, Guadeloupe, Antigua & Barbuda and Trinidad & Tobago
