European Thalassaemia & Sickle Cell Disease Symposium

European Thalassaemia & Sickle Cell Disease Symposium

The Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF) is organising the European Thalassaemia & Sickle Cell Disease Symposium for doctors and patients. The Symposium will take place online on 11 – 13 December 2020. 


Organised in the context of TIF’s internationally renowned educational programme, the Symposium is aimed at patients and doctors specialising in the field of haemoglobin disorders. It presents an ideal opportunity for an exchange of knowledge on the latest scientific advances in the field, and for participants to share their concerns and views. 


With an agenda that covers the latest advances in research, recent regulatory authorisations of therapies for the care and cure of thalassaemia and sickle cell disease by the European Medicines Agency, as well as the multidisciplinary care required for appropriate clinical management through case presentations, the Symposium will also deal with topics of major interest concerning patients and their quality of life. Special focus will be placed on patients’ disease education and the empowerment of patients and their families, whose representation and participation is extremely important at all levels of decision-making bodies, nationally and regionally. 


The objectives of the Symposium are to inform the medical and patient communities on the state-of-art clinical management of thalassaemia and sickle cell disease, and to develop the skills and capacities of patients and patients associations. It will also focus on the latest scientific developments in the field, on recent authorisations of new drugs and therapies, and on extending knowledge through sharing experiences.


This three-day Symposium will host more than 60 international experts, patients and doctors specializing in haemoglobin disorders. It is addressed to:

Patients and their families 

Patients Associations/Support Groups 

Doctors (haematologists, paediatricians, etc.) 

Healthcare professionals
