The radical improvements in prevention and management of β-thalassaemia major that have been taking place in the last three decades, primarily in the West, have led to significant progress in thalassaemia prevention and treatment. Thanks to these improvements, patients with β-thalassaemia major can now have an increased survival rate and a better quality of life. TIF’s mission is to ensure this progress reaches and benefits all patients across the world.
The Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF) has developed a plethora of educational material and resources that provide concise, up to date information on all aspects of thalassaemia, from prevention to clinical management, and cover almost all age groups. Constantly monitoring international developments, TIF’s objective is to provide strong and solid knowledge about the latest advances in thalassaemia prevention and care to patients, their families, healthcare professionals and the community at large, and thus empower them to advocate for better quality of life for thalassaemia patients worldwide.
