It is interesting to note that the translation of SCD in most languages may not truly reflect the true meaning of SCD. While some translations are symptomatic, others may be circumstantial in meaning.
For instance, the Yoruba translation of SCD is- “Arun Arunmolegungun” a disease that hurts the child’s bones- (a symptomatic translation). It is also referred to as “Abiku”- children who come and go” (a circumstantial translation).
