Raising public awareness of iron overload and our work.

A crucial part of our work is making people aware of haemochromatosis and the effects of iron overload. We want haemochromatosis to be as familiar to the general public as cystic fibrosis and multiple sclerosis are, for example.

This section of our website tells you about some of our work to raise awareness and how you might be able to help.

The more people are aware of genetic haemochromatosis (GH), then the more likely it is that early symptoms could lead to prompt diagnosis and treatment. Early diagnosis saves lives.
