Screening for sickle cell and thalassaemia in multi-cultural societies
I was invited to give a talk at Radbound University, Nijmegen, Netherlands, exploring the value of using ethnic origin as a tool for identifying populations at risk of sickle cell or thalassaemia disorders. The Dutch Government is looking at ways of developing its genetic screening programme and the paper I presented reflected on some of the issues raised by offering screening in the UK.
