Welcome to yet another edition of our newsletter.
Thalassemia is a genetic blood disorder that affects the production of haemoglobin in the body. In India thalassemia majorly affects over 1, 00,000 people and over 8,000 reported thalassemia births take place every year. Thalassemia has no cure and people living with this disease require regular blood transfusions as an effective measure to prolong life.
The need of the hour is to have a National Policy on thalassemia, which will help in not just creating awareness about the disease but also ensure treatment for all and strategies to prevent its spread. Read more on it in this issue of PSM-India Capsules.
