    Mr. Panos Englezos

    I am delighted to cordially extend an invitation to you to attend the 13th International Conference on Thalassemia and the Hemoglobinopathies and the 15 International Conference for Patients and Parents, which will take place in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in October 2013.

    The global thalassemia family is extremely honoured and privileged to have this conference held under the auspices of Her Highness, Sheikha Sheikha Bint Seif Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates Thalassemia Society. The great history of Her Highness’s magnanimous humanitarian work and her personal commitment and wholehearted devotion in alleviating the pain and suffering of patients with chronic diseases such as Thalassemia and sickle cell disease guarantees the success of this educational event which is the biggest and most significant activity in the context of TIF’s educational programme.

    The Middle East is a region where significant progress has been achieved over the decades with regards to the management of the hemoglobin disorders and having now, the family of H.H. Sheikh Sultan Bin Khalifa Al Nahyan as an ally, we are confident that together we will have an even greater impact in enforcing equal access and excellence in the treatment of patients with Hemoglobinopathies not only in the region, but globally.

    This conference will be very special, in that for the first time the Sultan Bin Khalifa International Thalassemia Awards will be presented to those individuals, researchers, centres, patients, who have excelled in their work and contribution in the field. Abu Dhabi is a place of magnificent beauty. Along with our hosts, I take the honour to invite you to experience the exquisite hospitality of Abu Dhabi and to join us in this world renowned educational event.

    Looking forward to seeing you in 2013 in Abu Dhabi.

    On behalf of the Board of Directors,

    Mr. Panos Englezos

    TIF President
