Thalassemia (Mediterranean Anemia- MA) is a hereditary illness seen in many parts of the world, transmitted from parents to children, causing high anemia and needs to get lifelong treatment. This illness is known as “Mediterranean Anemia” as it is widely seen in Mediterranean countries. According to the data from Ministry of Health and National Hemoglobinopathy Council, while the number of the registered patients was 4500 in 2002, in 2011, this number was about 6000 and 3 out of 100 people are disease carriers.It is seen along a zone including Mediterranean countries; Italy, Greece,Spain,Cyprus and North and South coasts of Turkey (Mediterranean,Aegean Region and Thrace) Consanguineous marriages seen widely in a country incerase the frequency of diseases which are rarely seen and hereditary transmitted such as thalassemia in society. In Turkey, 1 out of 5 marriage is consanguineous marriage. MA is a real problem in our country where the rate of consanguineous marriage is pretty high. That the disaese is widely seen although it is preventable, new researches are conducted for this issue and treatment conditions are eased, shows the necessity of acceleration for the studies of caring, protective health service and preventing the disease. According to publication of WHO, in the World, MA and frequency of abnormal hemoglobin rate is %5.1 (266 million). Every year, almost 300,000 sick children are born.That improving diagnostic methods of prenatal for thalassemia and detecting disease carriers with diagnostic scanning have become very effective in terms of protective services and treatments and in developed countries, thalassemia problem is solved with a great extent. Especially in EU countries where hereditary MA is seen, proper strategical policies aiming at protective and caring service special to the disease have been set and in service trainings have been arranged and it has been given importance to vocational training for the medical staff who will work at this area.
