More about TIF

The Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation founded in 1986 by a small group of patients and parents representing mainly National Thalassaemia Associations in Cyprus, Greece, UK, USA and Italy; that is, countries who first recognised thalassaemia as an important public health issue and who began to promote and implement the first national programmes for thalassaemia control, including prevention and clinical management. TIF was officially registered under Cyprus Company Law in 1987, and since 1996 it has worked in official relations with the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Nel corso degli anni, la TIF ha realizzato collaborazioni e reti di contatti con un’ampia serie di associazioni ed enti pubblici del campo sanitario e con organizzazioni di pazienti a livello nazionale, regionale e internazionale. Oggi la TIF si è evoluta in una “associazione ombrello”, che comprende 118 associazioni in 57 paesi del mondo, salvaguardando i diritti dei pazienti a una salute e a nuove terapie di qualità.
