Dear colleagues and friends,

Thank you for taking the time to share information and experiences on the pandemic. Many sincere thanks also to all frontline doctors and nurses for your ceaseless efforts to save lives. Francesco, Sara and everyone working in the field, we are grateful.

We, as Thalassaemia International Federation, have prepared a booklet with useful information on COVID-19 and haemoglobin disorders. Our patients' community is one of the most vulnerable and it is important to keep everyone safe.
