WORLD HAEMOCHROMATOSIS WEEK

In the first week of June each year we join with members of Haemochromatosis International, the international alliance of haemochromatosis support groups, to create a worldwide, coordinated haemochromatosis awareness campaign in each member country. Using all forms of media, displays, and other activities, this week is an opportunity to focus attention on haemochromatosis and the risk of inherited iron overload.

The key messages of the week are:

  • Haemochromatosis is the most common genetic disorder in Australia
  • If you are the 1 in 200 affected, it can cause serious health problems
  • Ask your doctor to find out if you are storing too much iro
