Apply for Membership

There is one class of membership- primary membership and there is no fee associated with this class of membership. Primary membership is open to disease-specific and cross-disease patient organizations that serve people impacted by sickle cell disease (SCD) and other inherited non-malignant blood disorders.

Utilizing a unified and collective approach, primary members will address the Challenges of the Inherited Blood Disorders Community.

Patient organizations interested in joining the Global Action Network for Sickle Cell & Other Inherited Blood Disorders as primary members must:
