President for creating awareness about Thalassemia


ISLAMABAD, May 9 (APP): President Mamnoon Hussain on Monday underlined the need for creating awareness among people for prevention of Thalassemia noting that lack of education, unsafe blood transfusions and ignorance from basic principles of hygiene lead to the spread of this fatal disease.

The President said this while addressing the Awareness Campaign on the occasion of “World Thalassemia Day” organized by Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal here.
