TIF needs funds to carry out its mission. TIF plays a major role in the development and implementation of control programmes for thalassaemia, including prevention and clinical management, and is widely acknowledged as being the global voice of patients with thalassaemia.
In this context it may attract the attention of public and private institutions, foundations and other bodies, as well as companies or industry representative organisations which have a particular interest in the development of drugs, medical equipment, consumables and other medical and healthcare related products and technologies.
As a patient-driven organisation, TIF is committed to maintaining its independence and will make choices and take positions based solely upon patients’ needs and perspectives.
