A free thalassemia carrier screening and awareness camp held in association of First Security Islami Bank Ltd. and Institute for Developing Science and Health Initiatives (ideSHi) at Asian University for Women, Chattogram. Thalassemia is a deadly disease that is transmitted through parents. Thalassemia can be prevented if one thalassemia carrier does not marry another thalassemia carrier. That why, it is important for every person who are planning to marry to have a thalassemia test.
