Introduction

Tanzania Sicklecell Warriors Organisation (TASIWA) – Is a non-governmental organization founded with the aim of helping other people living with sickle cell disease, parents and care givers as well as the community at large through increasing awareness and education on the disease and bringing new hope to families that are affected direct or indirect by sickle cell disease within the Tanzanian community

More than 11,000 infants are born with sickle cell in Tanzania, annually. The Tanzanian community is less informed about Sickle Cell disease; leading to high prevalence of sickle cell disease as well as high mortality rate of children born with sickle cell disease . Despite the initiatives done by the government of United Republic of Tanzania, there is still a knowledge gap, whereas TANZANIA SICKLECELL WARRIORS ORGANISATION (TASIWA) is committed to educate and build capacity among the society about Sickle Cell disease in Tanzania.
