Sultan Bin Khalifa International Thalassemia Award

 

Thalassemia is one of the most common inherited blood disorders known to mankind. It is estimated that at least 12 children are born with Thalassemia disease every hour in the World. With over 490 million thalassemia carriers in the World, in the absence of a comprehensive Thalassemia prevention program, children with Thalassemia disease will continue to be born draining the medical, social and economic resources of many nations.

In the recent past, the quality of life of many Thalassemia patients have improved. This contribution comes not only from the scientific advances but also due to of enormous self-less efforts of many individuals that include Patients, Parents, Scientists, and Medical Experts. Several dedicated Institutions have made enormous progress in improving the access and care of these patients. These efforts have so far not been appropriately valued.

Sultan Bin Khalifa International Thalassemia Award is one of the divisions of "His Highness Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan Humanitarian & Scientific Foundation" that is dedicated to value substantive efforts and contributions that have been made towards improving quality of life of patients with Thalassemia & other Hemoglobinopathies, by Individuals & Institutions, at National, Regional or International level.
