Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Document current treatment patterns, natural history and outcomes in patients with sickle cell disease [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Data collection [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
    Collection of the following data:Current therapies used for the treatment of SCD Current transfusion practices, Difference in treatments between pediatric and adult patients, Use of chelation therapies, Frequency and types of crises including Frequency of hospitalizations, Incidence of end organ damage (caridac, renal, pulmonary,liver), Quality of life assessed by PedsQL TM Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory for patients 2- <18 years old and SF-36® Health Survey for patients 18 years old and older

  2. Measure Sickle cell crisis and hospitalizations [ Time Frame: up to 5 years ]
    To evaluate whether patients on regular transfusion protocol have fewer crisis and hospitalizations
