Transparency Statement

Widely acknowledged as the global voice of thalassaemia patients, TIF needs funds to carry out its mission to advocate and support the development and implementation of control programmes for thalassaemia, including prevention and clinical management.

TIF’s funding derives from a number of sources including international and regional funds, industry, generous donors, organisations in the pursuit of their common interest in haemoglobin disorders (thalassaemia and sickle cell disease).

The overall proportion of industry related funding is 46.74% and the non-industry funding is 53.26%. The highest contribution from a single company is 17.71% (Last update 2017).


As a patient-driven organisation, TIF is committed to maintaining its independence and will make choices and take positions based solely upon patients’ needs and perspectives.
