Hundreds of Thalessimia patients in Pakistan die every year due to the lack of a blood donation culture, said Dr Tahir Shamsi, Consultant Hematologist at National Institute of Blood Disease and Bone Marrow Transplantation (NIBD).
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, Dr Shamsi said that approximately 1.4 million bottles of blood are needed to cater to Thalessimia patients that make 0.8 million of the country's population while only 1.6 million bottles in laboratories across Pakistan are available. "Given this, the culture of donating blood shall be promoted in the country," she said.
Dr Shamsi said that blood disease especially Thalessimia and hemophilia were on the rise in Pakistan at an alarming rate. He stressed the need on creating awareness about blood donation and treatment opportunities for patients to control the disease.

Blood cancers have a reputation of being deadly diseases with very little hope for patients Although there have been some treatment options available, but the survival rates were not encouraging.With the advent of new targeted treatments, blood cancer patients now have an improved chance of survival.
Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) is the recent inclusion in the list of blood cancers that can be managed successfully.It has long been known to result from abnormal enzyme activity (tyrosine kinase).
Audience: It is pointed out by Dr. Shamsi in his presentation that ‘Glivec' is an expensive drug which is difficult for a poor person to afford.I have heard that in USA, there is an organisation which is providing this drug free of cost to needy and deserving patients.The question is: do we have any such option available here in Pakistan?
ICN: I think it would be more appropriate if this question is responded by someone from Novartis Pharma.
Dr. Tahir Shamsi: Why would a commercial company like your's give a very expensive medicine free of cost.What is the catch?
Dr. Tahir Shamsi: Is it that you will give only free samples for a short period of time, and then tell the patients to go and buy the drug from the market.Or are are you prepared to take full responsibility for continuous treatment?
