With a view to achieving the aims and objectives outlined above, the SCPHPC has been operating in two broad ways:
The SCPHPC organizes weekly clinics in which registered patients are grouped into eight (8), each group is given a day once a month for attending the clinic. Mondays and Wednesdays have been set aside as clinic days.
Health talks, counseling, tests for the newly enlisted patients and referrals (as the case may be) are part of the weekly activities of the SCPHPC. Patients are given routine/supportive drugs which will take them to their next clinic day.
Mobile clinic is organized once a month by the SCPHPC on a selected locality. This is always achieved through the collaboration and support from the traditional authorities of the selected area. Home and hospital visits to patients in critical and crises situation are being carried out during the mobile clinic days.
The SCPHPC successfully linked up and cooperated with government and other sickle cell organizations across the country for the purpose of promoting awareness and education on sickle cell anemia.
The SCPHPC commenced the publication of its quarterly Magazine in January 2010.
The SCPHPC frequently conducts capacity development workshops for its staff and volunteers of the Centre.
The SCPHPC organizes rallies in Kaduna and celebrates the World Sickle Cell Day on the 19th June of every year.
