4th European Symposium on Rare Anaemias

In the fight against rare diseases the joint efforts are essential. In the case of rare anaemias, the joint effort is called 4th European Symposium on Rare Anaemias. The event, that will take place in Sofia (Bulgaria) on 19-20 November, is an activity of the ENERCA project which aims to disseminate up-to-date knowledge and increase the public awareness about congenital and rare anaemias.

The ENERCA Symposium will take place in Bulgaria as a framework for the 3rd Bulgarian Symposium of Thalassaemia. The Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF) and the Thalassaemic’s Organization in Bulgaria (TOB), together with ENERCA, have collaborated to present a complete and transversal event. The program includes an interactive workshop with patient panellists and doctors, focusing not only on clinical management but also on prevention and social action for thalassaemia and haemoglobinopathies.

The Organizing Committee is led by Dragomir Slavev, head of the Thalassaemic’s Organization in Bulgaria, and the Scientific Committee is led by Dr. Joan Lluis Vives Corrons, head of the Anemia Unit at the IDIBAPS - Hospital Clínic of Barcelona and director of ENERCA. They will coordinate a wide panel of experts that will discuss the main issues both in diagnosis and case management. On 19-20 November, rare anaemias move to Sofia (Bulgaria).
