The Lancet Haematology Series: Priorities in Haematological Care in sub-Saharan Africa

The Lancet Haematology Series: Priorities in Haematological Care in sub-Saharan Africa

Global health initiatives have helped improve health in sub-Saharan Africa, however, haematological care has been largely neglected. Join the launch of The Lancet Haematology Series on Haematological Care Priorities in sub-Saharan Africa to hear from experts across sub-Saharan African working on haematological malignancies, sickle cell disease, iron-deficiency anaemias, and blood transfusion. The Series advocates for the need to invest in research and clinical care in haematology in the region, analyses key challenges in this setting and programmes that succeeded in improving care in the past years, and provides recommendations to help specialists working in sub-Saharan Africa provide effective, locally appropriate care in the region.
