Pay television provider, MultiChoice Nigeria, has announced the sponsorship of the 2019 Sickle Cell Genetic Counseling workshop, organised by the Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria (SCFN).

The workshop, which began on April 29 and will end on 10 May, 2019, is taking place at the National Sickle Cell Centre, Idi Araba in Lagos.

The workshop is aimed at raising awareness about and deepening understanding of the Sickle Cell Disorder (SCD) as well as pointing out ways SCD victims could lead normal lives.

In his opening remarks, the chairman of Sickle Cell Foundation, Nigeria, Professor Olu Akinyanju, commended MultiChoice for supporting the foundation for so many years and sponsoring the 18th edition of genetic counseling workshop.

He also appealed to other Corporate bodies to emulate the kind gesture of MultiChoice Nigeria.

MultiChoice Nigeria’s sponsorship of the workshop is in continuation of its support for the management and treatment of SCD in Nigeria, which is spearheaded by the SCFN.

Conscious of the importance of awareness and research to the control of SCD, MultiChoice Nigeria, in 2009, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SCFN.

The partnership officially made the control of SCD in the country a key Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) undertaking by MultiChoice Nigeria.
