Abstract

The purpose of this survey was to evaluate the experience of physicians in Burkina Faso with haemoglobinopathy (particularly sickle cell disease). Survey findings showed that these pathologies were encountered in daily medical practice but that resources necessary to insure proper prevention, follow-up and treatment were insufficient. Practitioners expressed the need for better continuous medical education and for information campaigns to familiarize the public.
