Projects on Thalassaemia

Now we are running 3 years Research Project “Prevalence and Awareness among Thalassemia Population, special reference to various tribes belonging in different districts of West Bengal.” It is funded by Department of Biotechnology, Govt. Of India.

 

We have completed 2 years and we are running 3rd year of this Projects. We have covered the Tribes in West Bengal in last 2 years :

  1. TOTO , a smallest Tribe in India, residing at Toto Para , Madarihat, Jalpaiguri District.

  2. Rabha , a tribe , residing at Deep Forest in Doars, KhayerBari- II GP, Jalpaiguri Distric.

  3. Santal, Munda ,Malpahari,   tribes at Tea Garden in Doars, Garubathan, Malbazar, Jalpaiguri.

  4. Different Tribes in Sundarban, Dist. 24 Parganas ( South ).

  5. Different Tribes in Dist. Birbhum.

We have applied to Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India for renewal of this project for another two years and If we get approval , we will work more on different Tribes in West Bengal. The research data reveals that the Thalassaemia Carrier status is very alarming and many of them are facing life threatening problems due to consanguineal marriage ( Marriage between Close Relatives ) among themselves. We have a social duty to aware themselves about the Disease.
