The United States Department of Health and Human Services, in partnership with the American Society of Hematology and SickleinAfrica, and with the participation of the World Health Organization, invites you to join a webinar on strengthening SCD efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, that is going to be held on June 29th 2020 at 9:00 AM EDT (1:00 PM GMT/4:00 PM EAT).

In February 2020, global stakeholders came together at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, DC to initiate the Global Coalition on SCD which aims to develop, organize, and implement a global multi-sectoral approach to combatting SCD. This 90-minute webinar will highlight current knowledge on the impact of COVID-19 on health care systems and access to care for individuals living with SCD. The webinar will also include a discussion on the next steps of the Coalition.

Information on registering for the webinar can be found here.

The event is cosponsored by: United States Department of Health and Human Services, American Society of Hematology, and SickleinAfrica
