The WOSC Symposium is free-to-attend for all Pre-Registered Delagates of the African Congress on Sickle Cell Disease and offers the chance for women living with sickle cell, women caregivers, women leaders & luminaries and other individuals working to overcome sickle cell to network, learn and feel inspired.

The Women Overcoming Sickle Cell Symposium will focus on sickle cell disease in women and highlight key issues affecting women that has never been addressed before on any stage. A first for Nigeria and Africa, this one-day one-of-a-kind event will focus on what it means to be a woman living with sickle cell and also acknowledge women luminaries with sickle cell and women-led sickle cell representative organizations who are contributing tremendously to tackling sickle cell through high impact advocacy, treatment and community commitment on the African Continent and beyond.
