Congressional Sickle Cell Caucus

In 2014, SCDAA announced the formation of the Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) Congressional Caucus. This legislative milestone is designed to focus on increasing support for the largely under-funded disease. The Caucus will work toward bringing public and congressional awareness to the unique needs of the Sickle Cell Disease community – patients, physicians, scientists and industry, and to develop opportunities to address barriers in access to and development of crucial treatments.
