The 3rd Pan-European Conference on Haemoglobinopathies & Rare Anaemias is an international meeting oriented to all the key players in Haemoglobinopathies & Rare Anaemias, including patients and patient organisations, healthcare professionals, academics, researchers, policy-makers and industry. Organized by the Thalassaemia International Federation (TIF), the Conference joined stakeholders from the 27 Member States of the European Union as well as from other states of the Council of Europe and countries of neighbouring regions.

On addition of being among the event organizers, ENERCA was on the center of attention during two dedicated sessions on October 26th. The debate focused on the role of Experts Centres, cross-border health, the improvement of education and training on rare anaemias, and laboratory diagnosis, epidemiology and screening issues. The ENERCA sessions were sponsored by SEBIA, Novartis and Vienna Lab.
