Thalassaemia major: Counselling and community education.
In two previous articles, Simon Dyson, Verna Davis, and Raheya Rahman described the basic facts about thalassaemia and also considered the outcome of a preliminary survey establishing levels of awareness among community groups in one area. In this, the concluding article in the series, they look at the particular issues raised in thalassaemia counselling work and consider one approach to community education on the issue.
