What we do
ASCO improves equitable access to healthcare for sickle cell through action, advocacy and strategic partnerships. These address economic, social and structural determinants of health of people living with and affected by sickle cell disease.
We do this by empowering people living with sickle cell. ASCO equips them with information, resources and skills to understand, manage and thrive with sickle cell.
We strengthen county health systems to respond to sickle cell. Through strategic partnerships ASCO builds capacity of health system and its actors to provide timely, continuous and affordable care for sickle cell at tertiary and primary healthcare levels.
We inform local and national sickle cell policies. Our advocacy efforts and investment in people and systems create sustained impetus for policy and budgetary allocation for sickle cell.
