About 1 in 10 children with sickle cell anaemia have a high risk of developing strokes (overt or silent). This debilitating complication can impede their mobility and/or impair their intellectual ability.
Happily, strokes can be prevented, if children at risk of developing them can be identified and given preventive treatment. With modern Trans-Cranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasound scanning, children with a high risk of developing strokes, can be identified and thus protected with stroke prevention treatment. Children aged 2 – 10 years are most vulnerable but all children from 2 – 16 years are invited to have TCD scans once a year at the National Sickle Cell Centre.
We look forward to partners who would sponsor our extension of this health and life-saving service across the country.
