Address by the President of the Republic Mr Nicos Anastasiades at the Thalassaemia International Federation event

Thalassaemia has been described in published literature as a disease existing well before the age of the father of modern Western medicine, Hippocrates (460-370 BC), but the real attention, focus and dramatic advances in its understanding, prevention and care, came in the last three to four decades, with the active involvement of patients and parents and more specifically of the Thalassaemia International Federation. -06.05.2015
