  1. What are the implications of sickle cell anaemia ?

    Article - En anglais

    Sickle Cell Trait is common in certain populations.

    The vast majority of individuals who possess combinations of these genes which cause variations in haemoglobin are asymptomatic.

    However, despite advances in treatment, health problems associated with homozygous inheritance can result in work-related performance issues.

    Such cases require individual risk assessments in relation to their jobs when considering fitness for work, rehabilitation and prevention of symptoms.
