Welcome to the Global Alliance of Sickle Cell Disease Organizations
With the belief that the quality of care and treatment for sickle cell disease should not be determined by where you live; the Global Alliance of Sickle Cell Disease Organizations (GASCDO) will work with National Member Organizations (NMOs), Regional Member Organizations (RMOs) and collaborators to ensure GASCDO is abreast of challenges faced in their communities in order to provide them with effective support. GASCDO Represents:
Patients with SCD
Parents, carriers, and families of patients with SCD
National and regional SCD Organizations
Health care professionals
Educators and advocates
Others not limited to individuals, organizations, institutions (including centers of excellence, research and care provider organizations); and the industry.
First Global Conference of Sickle Cell Disease Organizations
The Global Alliance of Sickle Cell Disease Organizations (GASCDO) is seeking new board members to guide its mission and development. Board members are responsible for ensuring that GASCDO fulfills its fiduciary responsibilities to the organization and are committed to GASCDO’s mission to serve the sickle cell community globally. The Board of Directors, acting as a single entity, is legally and ethically responsible for all activities of the organization. Individual board members have an obligation to uphold the standards of conduct set for them by the board and applicable laws.
The Board of Directors meets monthly and are expected to serve on at least one committee and serve the organization in other capacities. Board members serve a minimum of three years as ambassadors of the organization.
Interested individuals should submit by May 22, 2021 to firstname.lastname@example.org, a current resume and written statement about why they want to serve on the board of GASCDO including other global, nonprofit boards they’ve served on; interest and/or commitment to SCD; leadership roles they’ve held and for how long. Additionally, they have to be from an existing member organization of GASCDO.
