Detailed About MCQs

Every year, World Sickle Cell Awareness Day is observed on 19th June. This day aims to increase awareness of the disease and the challenges faced by people affected by the disease. Sickle cell disease is caused as a result of sickle-shaped red blood cells which stick together and block blood flow and thereby reduce the ability of oxygen to reach all parts of the body. Affected patients experience pain, anemia, infection, and other serious health complications.
