Thalassemia is a group of blood disorders passed from parents to children through genes. A person who has thalassemia makes fewer healthy red blood cells. Their red blood cells do not produce enough hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen throughout the body.
People with severe thalassemia can have various medical complications. They might also require lifelong blood transfusions for treatment.
The International Thalassaemia Day, celebrated on May 8 every year is a commemoration day in honour of all patients with thalassaemia and their wards who never gave up despite all odds.
The theme for International Thalassaemia Day 2019 is - Universal access to quality thalassaemia healthcare services: Building bridges with and for patients.
