Welcome Message

Dear Friends,

We are privileged to cordially invite you to attend and participate in the upcoming 15th International Conference on Thalassaemia & Other Haemoglobinopathies & the 17th TIF Conference for Patients & Parents, to be held virtually on 19-21 November 2021.

Organised by the Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF), this conference promises to provide an outstanding opportunity for all involved stakeholders to bridge perspectives from various disciplines and to meet the challenges of improving the health and quality of life of those affected by haemoglobinopathies. This conference constitutes a unique forum for sharing knowledge and experiences and for building up new friendships, collaborations, partnerships and networks.

Following the global pandemic of COVID-19, this year’s conference requires a different approach, to allow international engagement and ensure participant safety. For the first time our International Conference will be web-based. To make sure that the conference will maintain its top-quality educational level despite its virtual nature, we aim to organize an exciting, ground-breaking and highly educational scientific program, covering a broad range of thematic topics.

Due to the virtual nature of the conference, for the first time the Scientific Sessions are joint with the Patients Programme and promise very interesting lectures and discussions that appeal to all scientists, patients and parents who deal with Thalassaemia and other Haemoglobin Disorders. We are very excited to take this initiative.

We very much look forward to welcoming and seeing you all at this event, aiming to build a brighter future together for patients with haemoglobinopathies all over the world!


Mr Panos Englezos
President, Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF)

Dr Androulla Eleftheriou
