The purpose of the tour, according to the Dubai Thalassaemia Centre, is to provide an opportunity for doctors and patients associated with the disease to make positive contact with others in the emirates who are facing the same situation.
The tour, which began in Dubai yesterday, will cover several emirates. It will end in Dubai on Saturday as doctors, patients and families are invited to gather at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre again to celebrate the tour’s accomplishments with family-oriented activities and a workshop.
Speaking to Khaleej Times, Dr Essam Dohair, Coordinator of Dubai Thalassaemia Centre, remarked that there were two goals behind the tour: “Firstly, we want to gather all sufferers of the disease in the UAE in one place. Secondly, we want to raise public awareness about controlling and preventing Thalassemia. By introducing a pre-marital Thalassemia test, the disease need not be passed on to children by parents who are carriers.”
Top regional physicians will address the scientific workshop on April 28.
