About Us

Our Mission   "To improve the general quality of life for people with sickle cell disease through management and treatment; increasing advocacy against the stigma associated with the disease; providing awareness and information on Sickle Cell disease in Uganda"

Our Goal: To assist and develop the distressed, needy, neglected and vulnerable people living with sickle cell disease socially and economically by providing them necessary assistance for sustaining
their lives and conditions specially the women and children.

Our Strategy:
Over the last three years, we have been intensely focused on the discrete problems faced by the people living with sickle cell disease and their families most notably stigma, discrimination, extreme poverty, broken families and unemployment. These key areas are
impediments to the envisioned improved quality of life of our people.       There has been substantial progress in each area. But if we are going to achieve inclusion of the people living with sickle cell then there is more need for change.
USCRF is now focused on setting up Community support groups throughout all the regions of Uganda, setting up sickle cell awareness clubs in schools at all levels i.e primary to tertiary together with our economic empowerment program for families affected by sickle cell disease.
USCRF also seeks to develop partnerships and networks in many other countries across Africa and the world over, with patient organisations, government agencies, businesses,
investors, financial institutions, scientists and other allies committed to fight against stigma and discrimination.
