Sickle cell anaemia as seen by married and single people
Sickle cell anaemia as seen by married and single people
The urgent need to learn about “sickle cell anaemia as seen by married and single people” drove the impetus for this study. A case study of Enugu East Local Government Area in enugu state.
The study was led by four research questions. The study used a survey research design, and the study's area was Enugu East Local Government Area in Enugu State. We utilised simple random sampling. The sample size was 800 people from from the five locations studied.
The questionnaire for married and unmarried people was the primary data collection tool. The device was designed with a four-point rating scale in mind.
The data analysis revealed that five factors had low unacceptable percentage scores: ignorance of the existence of sickle cell anaemia, a lack of scientific basis on which married perceptions will be developed, the fact that sickle cell anaemia cannot be cured because it is an inheritable disease, and avoiding sickles if we want to manage the disease. The government should develop a channel for married and unmarried people to learn how to overcome negative stereotypes.
HISTORY THE STUDY
Sickle cell anaemia is a hereditary disorder that affects both married and single people. According to Oladele (1998), sickle cell anaemia is a disorder in which certain red blood cells are banana or crescent-shaped rather than biconcave, disk-shaped, or round lie a coin with defective haemoglobin S and are poor in delivering oxygen.
The faulty cells quickly disintegrate and die, resulting in a lack of blood (anaemia), which causes sickle cell crises with severe pain in bones and joints. Sickle-cell disease According to Adeykunmu (1991), sickle-cell anaemia is a chronic, genetic, and hemolytic disease unique to the black race caused by homozygous inheritance of an abnormal haemoglobin and resulting in a variation in the structure of the goblin, sickle-cell anaemia develops when the sickle cell gene is homozygous (SS). Sickle-cell anaemia is primarily found in tropical Africa or among people of African origin. It is an inherited sickness that spreads via ignorance.
Many people saw this ailment (sickle-cell anaemia) as a recantative spirit on man, while others saw it as a demonic possessive mark of sign. It is generally thought to be a hereditary condition that is inherited.
By perception of sickle cell anaemia, we imply people's comprehension of sickle cell anaemia, particularly married and unmarried people. It is a hereditary condition that is passed down from parents to children, albeit it was referred to as “Ogbanje” in the past.
According to the West African journals of medicine in 2000, perception of sickle cell anaemia relates with people's awareness and understanding of sickle cell anaemia. Because of their conceptions of these diseases (sickle-cell anaemia), many married people lost their faith and went to one native doctor or another.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
Sickle-cell anaemia is a significant condition that affects the Nigerian educational, social, and cultural systems.
People speculated and attributed numerous reasons and approximated incidence, types, and causes of sickle-cell anaemia, as well as neglect, abandonment, mistreatment, deprivation, and starvation meted out by society to the sufferer. We are starting the writing with the intention of exposing the true perceptions of married and unmarried folks towards sickle-cell anaemia and therefore erasing incorrect perceptions.
The researchers' primary concern is to evaluate the prevalence of sickle cell anaemia perception in Enugu-East Local Government Area of Enugu State.
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
The purpose of this research is to determine the prevalence of perceptions in Enugu-East and other aspects associated to them, as well as to give recommendations for removing the problems or misconceptions.
Attempts include, among other things,
vTo ascertain married people's perceptions about sickle cell anaemia.
Identifying unmarried individuals' attitudes of sickle cell anaemia.
To propose answers to these views in order to reverse the incorrect perceptions.
To ascertain the scientist's reaction to the perceptions of married and unmarried sickle-cell anaemia patients.

The government and the children will be aware of the various perspectives of married and unmarried individuals towards sickle cell anaemia, as well as the implications of these perceptions for society at general.
It will assist the researcher in devising another method of doing research and learning more about the perception of sickle cell anaemia.

What are married people's attitudes about sickle cell anaemia?
What are unmarried people's attitudes towards sickle cell anaemia?
What are the many suggestions to perceptions in order to change incorrect views?
