At Thalassemics India, it is our constant endeavour to work
towards a Thalassemia-free world.
Established in 1986, Thalassemics India was conceived to check and help deal
with Thalassemia. A non-governmental organization, Thalassemics India is working
zealously across the country, operating in close association with doctors,
drug/equipment companies throughout the country and abroad, hospitals,
Thalassemia associations & centers.
An association which was formed by a few Thalassemia parents
in 1986, has now achieved the status of a State Awardee (1998) Organization with
a 1200 strong memberships that include thalassemics, Thalassemia parents,
associations, doctors & social workers.
Thalassemics India is a voting member of Thalassemia International Federation (TIF),

TIF; an international non-governmental organization collaborating closely with
members of Thalassemia associations worldwide. It is a matter of honour and
