Thalassemia Screening Center





History Logs

Project Description

Region: South-East Asia

Country: Bangladesh

Location: Kushtia

Total Budget: $60,500

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

RC Dhaka North has been active in awareness and screening for Thalassemia carriers in Dhaka. We wish to set up a Thalassemia Screening Laboratory in Kushtia to enable us to cover the western part of Bangladesh. This will enable us to provide country wide screening.

Every 1 in 10 person in Bangladesh is Thalassemia positive and 1 in 100 is a Thalassemia patient. So that means 16 million Thalassemia positive. We hope to create awareness and eliminate the disease in 50 years like polio.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
