Sickle Cell Awareness Campaign /

Sanius Health: Standing Up for Sickle Cell Disease

Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) affects over 15,000 people in the UK. With the exception of those within or connected to the SCD patient community, very few are aware of the challenges presented in addressing care for this condition.

As part of our efforts to support SCD patients, clinicians and the wider community, we have launched an international campaign this Sickle Cell Disease Awareness month. The campaign was funded through support from GBT.

Our motivation is to raise much-needed awareness around SCD as a condition; particularly around associated end-organ damage, quality of life and larger health inequalities. In partnership with patients, clinicians and research organisations, our awareness campaign bridges critical knowledge gaps around the condition; and highlights the importance of collaboration for better care and opportunities for the SCD community.

Our Focus and Partners /

We are thankful for the patient organisations, clinicians and research partners who are working with us to advance patient outcomes in Sickle Cell Disease. Shared thinking with global organisations ensures that our campaign echoes the true patient voice. The engagement activities we are running with patients for Sickle Cell Disease Awareness Month will build on the ongoing success of our current patient workshops, podcasts and social media campaigns. 

In addition, participation in thought leadership content from healthcare professionals at Barts Health, Bristol, Oxford University Hospital, London Northwest University Hospital, Imperial College London and others, have deepened our campaign’s clinical focus and perspective. We are also working with members of the National Healthcare Inequalities Improvement Programme NHS England, to align and execute our campaign’s focus. 

75% of people living with Sickle Cell Disease are most commonly treated in the 100 most deprived regions of the country. Across the 100 least deprived areas of the country, this is only 3%.

A global effort

Improving the care and lives of those with Sickle Cell Disease requires a unified and global effort. It is only through close work with those who understand the condition intimately, that we can truly make a difference on behalf of patients and their clinical teams. We hope that with our collective effort, we can uplift previously unheard patient voices, and share their experiences globally.
