Welcome to the official site of the International Association of Sickle Cell Nurses and Physician Assistants (IASCNAPA), the only association of nurses, physician assistants, social workers, and other health care professionals caring for individuals with sickle cell disease. The association was established in 1990, and at present, we have over 300 members worldwide.

This web site has been online since March 2003. Interactive features are included for members of the association, as well as current news and events for the general public, so please visit often.

Membership is open to everyone. We encourage you to join!  

Mission Statement:

The International Association of Sickle Cell Nurses and Physician Assistants (IASCNAPA) recognizes its responsibility to maintain high standards in the provision of quality and accessible health care services for individuals with sickle cell disease. IASCNAPA is committed to strengthening the relationship between nurses and physician assistants who care for patients with sickle cell disease.

The nurse and physician assistant make significant contributions that further the depth of knowledge about sickle cell disease. Our cooperative efforts allow us to play vital roles in clinical research as demonstrated by our participation in National Institutes of Health studies that have defined the natural history of sickle cell disease and proven the efficacy of prophylactic penicillin for children with the disease.
