The head of Department of Psychological Medicine and Mental Health of University of Cape Coast, Dr. Michael Tetteh Anim in collaboration with the School of Medical Sciences has launched a book titled “Psychology of the Sickle Cell Individual: Biopsychological-Spiritual Factors in Health”.
According to the author of the book, Dr. Michael Tetteh Anim, sickle cell disease is a serious issue that must not be taken for granted. He says though many people find themselves living with the disease due to no fault of theirs, the disease is still preventable.
He believes sickle cell disease is spreading all over the world as a result of cross marriage and also because a lot of people do not have knowledge about the disease.
On his part, the president of Sickle Cell Association at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Nana Kwesi Opoku Darko advised people to know their sickling status.
