SCDAA's mission is: "To advocate for and enhance our membership's ability to improve the quality of health, life and services for individuals, families and communities affected by sickle cell disease and related conditions, while promoting the search for a cure for all people in the world with sickle cell disease."

Member Organizations are therefore the foundation of what SCDAA is built on. We realize that in order to reach as many Sickle Cell Disease patients and other stakeholders as possible, we must work alongside Community Based Organizations. By working together, we create a strong network that makes a difference in the lives of those affected by Sickle Cell Disease.
