Iron Out Your Health Campaign
Haemochromatosis Australia has commenced a social media campaign to let Australians aged 20-35 know about hereditary haemochromatosis. The campaign encourages family members of a person with hereditary haemochromatosis to talk to their GP about their family history.
Stories by people with the condition are available to view here.
Hereditary Haemochromatosis HealthPathway
The Hereditary Haemochromatosis HealthPathway contains patient resources to be shared, along with clinical information. It also includes the High Ferritin App to refer therapeutic donors to the Australian Blood Service.
Genomics in General Practice
The RACGP guidelines for Genomics in General Practice contains guidance for all GPs on hereditary haemochromatosis.
Red25 is a life-saving social responsibility program run by The Australian Blood Service. It provides an opportunity for workplaces and community groups around Australia to unite and save lives through blood donation.
Haemochromatosis Australia encourages therapeutic donors (and their friends and families) to be part of this program by joining the Haemochromatosis Australia-NSW Red25 group.
To join the group, visit the Australian Blood Service website or call the Haemochromatosis Australia info line on 1300 019 028.
