Positionspapiere

TIF beteiligt sich aktiv an der Entwicklung von Positionspapieren zu Schlüsselthemen, die Patienten mit Thalassämie betreffen, um ihre Lebensqualität und ihren Zugang zur Behandlung zu ermöglichen und zu verbessern.

Jedes Positionspapier wird nach intensiven Recherchen und Beratungen mit unseren Mitgliedern weltweit erarbeitet. Nach Fertigstellung werden die Positionspapiere an die wichtigsten Akteure und Gesundheitsbehörden auf nationaler, regionaler und internationaler Ebene verteilt, um die erforderlichen Maßnahmen zur Lösung des Problems zu ergreifen.

Darüber hinaus werden sie im Rahmen des Globalen Ärztenetzwerks der TIF verbreitet und vor allem an Thalassämieverbände auf der ganzen Welt verteilt, um Patientenvertreter zu ermutigen, einen produktiven Dialog mit ihren nationalen Gesundheitsbehörden, der medizinischen Gemeinschaft, Forschungsinstituten und der Industrie zu entwickeln und sich für die Umsetzung des vorliegenden Positionspapiers einzusetzen.

Position Statement: Accessibility of Gene Therapy for Thalassaemia

Gene therapy has been a long-awaited scientific development for thalassaemia patients and has given
hope, optimism, and opened new horizons. It is imperative for ground-breaking scientific advances and innovative therapies to be sufficiently recognized by national health authorities in conjunction with not only an understanding of the impact of the disease on the daily lives of patients and their families but also in regards to the actual cost-of-illness for healthcare providers.

Position Statement: COVID-19 & Thalassaemia

Many patients with haemoglobinopathies, including thalassaemia and sickle cell disease, are at increased risk of developing severe complications from the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19). In this Position Statement, TIF reflects on general considerations and levels of risk for patients, the adaptation of haemoglobinopathy care, the blood transfusions safety and the blood supply challenges.

Position Statement: The Use of DEHP Plasticizers in Medical Devices

The safety concerns linked to the use of DEHP plasticizers, a manufactured chemical common in blood bags and PVC intravenous fluid sets, has been explored, and even questioned, by many in recent years. TIF's Statement follows the publication of the guidelines prepared by the European Commission’s Scientific Committee on Health, Environment and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) in June 2019 and the consequent decision to gradually withdraw products made with this plasticizer from 2023, and replace it with alternative plasticizers.

Position Statement: COVID-19 & Inclusion of Thalassaemia and SCD Patients in the High-Risk Population

Through this Position Statement, TIF encourages National Health Authorities of every country across every region of the world, in the context of their national fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, to promote and adopt a series of policies in relation to the protection of the health and lives of individuals with haemoglobin disorders.
