Sickle cell disease affects people from various parts of the world, not just those of African descent
Sickle cell disease is a health issue that affects people all around the world, not just those with African backgrounds. This disease is common among people whose ancestors come from regions like Africa, India, Saudi Arabia, and some parts of the Americas and the Mediterranean. Since it is found in many different countries and affects various ethnic groups, it's important to remember that sickle cell disease is truly a global concern.
