“Knowing to Care: Sickle cell disease in school” project is an initiative of the Center for Education and Support for Hemoglobinopathies (Cehmob-MG), a partnership between Nupad and Hemominas Foundation.



The “Knowing to Care: Sickle cell disease in school” is a project carefully created. All its stages were collectively developed by a technical working group composed by representatives of the partner institutions (Federal University of Minas Gerais – UFMG, State Department of Health – SES-MG, State Department of Education – SEE-MG and Hemominas Foundation).

To be able to achieve our main goal, we build an architecture that visualizes all project phases. This strategy allows a better organization of our actions and defines specific responsibilities for each group member. Thus, the project is designed in a way that makes it possible to track and monitor their processes and evaluate the results.



The values defined are able to contemplate all the actions proposed by “Knowing to care: sickle cell disease in schools”. These values ​​are closely related to the project goals and beyond them:  feelings, behaviors and attitudes that we must show in any situation involving a person with sickle cell disease.
