The International Thalassaemia Day is coming up!

The International Thalassaemia Day is coming up!

On 8 May 2024, the global thalassaemia community will unite to celebrate International Thalassaemia Day.

International Thalassaemia Day (ITD) is a day of global significance devoted to celebrating the thalassaemia community and advocating for health equity, accessible care, and advanced therapies for those affected by Thalassaemia.

The upcoming theme for 2024, “Empowering Lives, Embracing Progress: Equitable and Accessible Thalassaemia Treatment for All”, reflects the need for a unified approach to address the right of patients to access all available treatment options and to achieve the best possible quality of life.

“While innovations in healthcare hold the promise of greatly improved health outcomes, these also can lead to the risks of deepening inequalities and the development of new forms of discrimination and marginalization” DR. ANDROULLA ELEFTHERIOU – TIF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
