The major component of TIF’s internationally accredited Educational Programme is the organisation of educational events (conferences, seminars and workshops) held at local, national, regional and international levels.
TIF’s established international events are the biennial International Conference on Thalassaemia and Other Haemoglobinopathies, and the Pan-European, Pan-Asian and Pan-Middle East Regional Conferences.
These events seek to address the needs of patients, parents, healthcare professionals and the general public in the field of thalassaemia and other haemoglobin disorders. Already over 30,000 participants (patients, parents, healthcare professionals etc) from over 100 countries have attended the educational events. The website is viewed by thousands of stakeholders, including national thalassaemia associations, medical centres and hospitals, individual physicians, patients and parents, Government bodies & national health authorities, International and national haematology and paediatric professional bodies, Pharmaceutical and other companies, TIF’s international partner organisations, friends and supporters.
