13th Thalassemia & Hemoglobin Illness Conference and the 15th International Conference for Parents & Patients, World Thalassemia Congress- Abu Dhabi, UAE
Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh / Mohamed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of Armed Forces of United Arab Emirates, President of the Executive Council in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates proudly hosted the World Thalassemia Congress 2013, in Abu Dhabi.
The UAE delegation consisted of 50 UAE Thalassemia patients, supervisors and parents. The delegation had a successful participation in World Thalassemia Congress where they actively compiled several lectures, presentations and greatly benefited from the roundtable discussions with parents & patients from all around the world. Also, the Society continued to achieve its goals to further educate and unite the UAE Thalassemia patients community in order to empower them to live their lives normally and healthy. At the same time, our patients also had an opportunity to meet with the patients, families and the specialists from many other participating countries of the world in the ‘Global Thalassemia Pavilion’, an idea which was wisely introduced by Emirates Thalassemia Society first time in the TIF International Conference. The Global Thalassemia Pavilion invited societies from all around the world to place their kiosks under one roof and sharing their society work practices and services with thousands of visitors.
