Challenge

Thalassemia and leukemia are blood diseases that affect thousands of Iraqis. A Thalassemia Center and Blood Bank is currently being rehabilitated, however the need to change public perceptions of these diseases and of blood donations remains unfulfilled.

Solution

This project will fund advertising and promotional costs for a campaign to increase awareness about blood diseases and the importance of blood donations.

Long-Term Impact

The project aims at improving local knowledge about thalassemia and leukemia, as well as increasing the number of blood donors in the project area.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
