International Francophone Forum on Sickle Cell Disease in African Countries (FIFDA)

Organised by Drépafrique and its scientific council, this forum has become an essential meeting place for quality training on the management of sickle cell patients in Africa. It has brought together more than 500 people every year since 2020.

Its forum objective is to offer training by webinar to the largest possible number of caregivers, not necessarily specialists in the disease, particularly those working in Africa. The target audience is wide: doctors, pharmacists, nurses, nurses' aides, psychologists, epidemiologists, laboratory technicians, patient associations, etc.

It takes place via a videoconference service, live and in French. Registration is free. The courses are led by two specialists in sickle cell disease in Africa and Europe.

The NGO Drépafrique and the speakers of the International Francophone Forum on Sickle Cell Disease in African countries (FIFDA), offers you these training modules by the greatest specialists of the disease. They are here to help you better understand the disease and better manage patients.
