No fewer than 1,250 girls from secondary schools in Katsina State are expected to be screened during the exercise.

Daily Trust reports that Katsina according to statistics from the state ministry of health of 2014 has about 17,000 sickle cell patients and the highest in the country.

Speaking at the flag up of free genotype and malaria screening programme, The Secretary to the Government of the State, Alhaji Mustapha Inuwa said sickle cell was characterized by high morbidity and mortality, where 50 percent of patients die within the first ten years of their life.

Disturbed by the growing trend, Inuwa said the administration has established 6 sickle cell clinics in Katsina, Funtua, Malumfashi, Dutsin-ma, Daura and Ingawa local government areas to check the disease.

In her remarks, the state commissioner of Health, Mariyatu Bala Usman, the screening was aimed at enlightening the students and the parents on the importance of genotype test before marriage.

She added that was why the government targeted secondary school students as part of measures to eliminate the disease because of its hereditary nature.

No fewer than 1,250 girls from secondary schools in Katsina State are expected to be screened during the exercise.
