Anaemia, anemia (sickle-cell)

Sickle-cell anaemia is a genetic blood disorder whereby there’s an abnormality in haemoglobin – the oxygen carrying protein present in red blood cells.

Sickle-cell anaemia can damage the liver, kidney, heart and lungs and cause severe pain.

In this film, a teenager born with the condition explains how she copes day-to-day and why she feels it’s important to raise awareness of sickle-cell anaemia.
