The most widespread genetic disease in the world and in France, Sickle-cell Disease remains widely unknown today. A serious disease that originated in the South, it has been spreading over centuries as a result of forced or voluntary migrations and the mixing of cultures. Everywhere in the world, Sickle-cell patients wage a constant war against the physical and moral pain induced by ignorance and exclusion. But Sickle-cell Disease is also the history of a political struggle that can be traced back to the United States Black Panthers in the sixties, to today's France social organisations. It is a struggle starting with making health care services accessible to all. To be a Sickle-cell patient is to fight for life.
