The national project, which has been carried out in collaboration with associations and hospitals, promotes the diagnosis and treatment of thalassemia. The initiative aims to provide centres of excellence with more effective equipment.

Thanks to a total contribution of four million euros, three MRI scanners were purchased for the centres in Cagliari, Ferrara and Genoa, and a new Beta thalassemiasa diagnosis and treatment department was created within Palermo’s “Cervello” Hospital, a research laboratory and patient family housing centre.
