It was reported by the Nation.com this week that Apollo Hospitals, India's leading super specialty hospitals that “it would collaborate with Nigeria in treating sickle cell anemia and bone marrow transplantation.” It was explained in the article that the “hospital made this known at a two-day continuous medical education (CME) organized by Diamond Helix Medical Assistance for medical doctors in Lagos.”
Other important information displayed was “the hospital will work with the Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria so that patients would not have to travel to India for bone marrow transplant and other sickle cell disease problems.”What was stressed was that “Nigeria is already doing well in its treatment, adding that more can be done as sickle cell is very much a black people’s problem.”
This whole article shows that not only are specialty hospitals taking interest in sickle cell but whole communities, it gives hope for the future and that's something that is always needed.
