The Challenge of Haemoglobin Disorders in Cyprus

Haemoglobin disorders like betathalassemia are a significant health challenge in Cyprus, affecting around 1,400 individuals. Genetics and migration patterns impact the prevalence, with betathalassemia major and intermedia leading to anaemia requiring blood transfusions. World Thalassemia Day emphasizes the need for equitable treatment and global awareness to support those living with these conditions.
