Background: Sickle cell disease (SCD) requires continuous familycentred management due to its chronicity and severity. Affected children depend greatly on their caregivers for assistance. SCD is the fourth leading cause of hospitalisation in children in Jamaica, with an incidence rate of 1:150 births. This strong dependence, frequent hospitalisation, medical visits and along with the unpredictable nature of the disease may cause financial strain and caregiver burden. This study seeks to determine the level of caregiver burden experienced by caregivers of children living with sickle cell disease attending a clinic in urban Jamaica. Design: A cross-sectional study was conducted among 180 caregivers of children ages 1 to 16 years living with SCD, attending a specialised sickle cell clinic. Data were collected using the Zarit Burden Interview (ZBI) Version 1.0. Descriptive statistics were utilised to summarise data. Results: The majority (79%) of respondents were females between the ages of 20 and 49 years old. Majority (76%) were employed, with 13% earning less than $10,000 which is below minimum wage. 48% of caregivers reported that they rarely or never experienced burden of care with their children. The ZBI overall burden score was M = 27.2, which indicate mild -- moderate burden. The highest burden was future expectations for child (41%). Majority (73%) indicated they often did not have enough money to care for the child. Conclusion: In this study, caregivers are younger and experienced burden mild to moderate; factors such as stable income and family support helped to reduce burden.
