Journey of saving Lives of the Thalassemia affected
  • Crisis: In India, there are 35 million Thalassemia gene carriers and 10-12,000 infants are born every year with major Haemoglobinopathies. Thalassemia patients need costly medicines and safe blood transfusion every 2-3 weeks.
  • Programs: TSCS runs a Blood Transfusion Center (the only one in Telangana) with 30 beds, a Blood Bank, Research Lab, and Diagnostic Center equipped with the latest facilities. They offer free safe blood transfusions, medical and genetic counseling, periodic checkups, and medicines at subsidized rates. A Bone-Marrow Transplantation (BMT) unit has been recently established for permanently curing patients suffering from Thalassemia.
  • Outcome: 1) Annually, the Transfusion Center helps around 2,000 patients (from 3 month old infants to <20 year olds). 2) 50% of the patients are children <10 years old and thus there is scope for permanent cure. 3) The Blood Bank provides 10,000-12,000 units of blood yearly. 4) BMT successfully performed on 3 patients so far. 5) Quality medical treatment provided in a cashless manner to 451 families living below the poverty line and covered under the Government's Aarogyasri Scheme.
