GASCDO is extremely excited to launch the 2023 World Sickle Cell Day Themes. Our themes this year are:

Building and strengthening Global Sickle Cell Communities, Formalizing NewBorn Screening and Knowing your Sickle Cell Disease Status.



This year, our themes are about recognizing that, the first step to fighting SCD is knowing one’s Genotype in infants and adults. Many people globally, only discover their status when they have children. With a new age world of advanced technology, there is no excuse, not to know your SCD status. A simple test can save a life.

GASCDO calls upon you all, to stand with us and help us in achieving this goal.

Stay with GASCDO as as we will soon be revealing more details on our plans for June 19, 2023.

We look forward to celebrating June 19 with each and everyone of you.
