Managing Thalassemia Throughout Asia: Overcoming the Obstacles
In the vast expanse of land and the many countries that occupy Asia, haemoglobinopathies are widely prevalent in a variable fashion; unfortunately, the standard of care is not proportionate to the burden of disease. Some regions with low prevalence have good standards of care for patients, and regions with high prevalence seem to be struggling even with basic care. Dr. Anuja P. Premawardhena will touch on how regional cooperation can be a way out of this quagmire.
