ACTIVITIES AT A GLANCE
Thalassaemia Detection and Awarness Camp
Thalassemia is one of the most prevalent disorders among inherited conditions – carried in genes and passing from one generation to other, affecting nearly 200 million people globally. It poses a serious public health threat globally because of the higher prevalence extending from the Mediterranean region and parts of Africa. In India, every year 10,000 children are being born with thalassemia which approximately accounts for 10% of the total world incidence of thalassemia-affected children and one in eight of thalassemia carriers live in India.
NSS Units in collaboration with Department of Physiology and District Thallasaemia Awarness Association organizes Thalassaemia Detection and Awareness Camps. In the last 3 years approximately 400 students of our college participated in the programme to detect the autosomal disease. Thalassaemia society of Paschim Medinipur collects the blood samples from the college and confirms the possibilities of future counseling for the carrier in order to guide such person to the right path, so that they can choose their life partner free of Thalassaemia disease.
