ENERCA video about haemoglobinopathies and children

Haemoglobinopathies are inherited blood disorders that reduce the production of haemoglobin, a substance within red blood cells that carries oxigen through all the body. Haemoglobinopathies are inherited illnesses that can pass from parents to their children. Get informed! All you need to do is a haemogram and a haemoglobins study. Ask your family doctor. Even parents who are both carriers of a haemoglobinopathy can have a healthy family together.

The video has been designed by ENERCA professionals to explain the importance of prenatal screenings. It is available also in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French at Vimeo.
