Webinar – COVID-19 and Sickle Cell Disease: The Current Scenario
Within the ARISE project the webinar “COVID-19 and Sickle Cell Disease: the current scenario” was held in two sessions on 19th and 28th May 2020 with the aim to better understand the impact of the COVID-19 on the Sickle Cell Disease population.
The first session focused on learning more about the pathogenesis of the disease and on comparing the current pandemic response from the UK, Italy and Ghana.
During the second session, the state of the pandemic was presented as well as useful data was shared on the responses from the United States and Lebanon. Furthermore, a focus on the children and families perspective as well as the psychological impact of COVID-19 on the population was widely addressed.
For each session CPD points were awarded. A summary of the webinar discussion is available here.
