This concluding chapter chronicles further developments in Senegal as well as on sickle cell anemia awareness in particular. It first discusses the shortcomings and successes of the sickle cell movement before pondering on the narrative “associations” families affected by sickle cell anemia make on the recent past. The chapter then explores some insights on Africa's place in the context of global interdependence and inequality, bringing to the fore the realities the Senegalese face from a political and economic standpoint. Finally, the chapter looks at the scope of African genetics and anthropology in the world today, particularly in the announcement of a new project for The Human Heredity and Health in Africa Project, designated as “H³ Africa.”

Keywords:   Senegal, sickle cell anemia, Africa, African genetics, African anthropology
