This is one of the most important areas of the Society’s work since its establishment. Prevention was the main objective of the Society. The Society devoted a great deal of attention to prevention.
The Association sought to achieve this goal through:
1- Educating the community, especially the young men and women who are about to get married.
2. To strive for the issuance of a law requiring to conduct of medical examination before marriage in coordination with the various official authorities concerned.
3 – Urging the official and community authorities to work to implement legislation on the prevention of genetic diseases.
4- Strengthen the partnership with the official and civil authorities to strengthen efforts to prevent childhood from the risk of these chronic diseases.
5 – Continuing demand of the concerned authorities in the ministries of health, justice, endowments, social affairs, education, higher education, technical vocational training and others to do all possible to raise awareness of these diseases and methods of prevention.
Therefore, we continue in these efforts until our country – God willing – is declared free of new births from Thalassemia and Hemoglobin disorders.
