JUST LANDED: “Prevention of Inherited Diseases – The Example of β-Thalassaemia“ Brochure by TIF

Prevention is the only measure that can drastically reduce the incidencies of severe haemoglobin disorders, such as β-thalassaemia.

 

It is also what allowed countries like Greece, Italy and Cyprus to go from historically high rates of thalassaemia to a substantial decrease of thalassaemia major cases in the last decades.

This TIF educational brochure focuses on the inheritance patterns of β-thalassaemia and describes the choices available for a so-called “at risk“ couple to have a child without this serious, debilitating disease.
