Sickle Cell Disease has been discovered over 100 years, yet with the increased global prevalence of SCD, progress in clinical trials, research and treatment has been slow.

Treatment outcomes for people with sickle cell disease (SCD) have only improved significantly in the past few years.

Currently, we are finally seeing some change in disease-modifying drug targeting SCD, clinical trials and research and hope for a universal cure.

In line with the current state in the care for SCD, we present a session about the lessons learned in the management of pain in SCD.
