Haemoglobinopathies is a term often used to describe a group of related, inherited haemoglobin disorders. This includes the thalassemias, where insufficient amounts of the component proteins of haemoglobin are made, resulting in a reduction of the amount of haemoglobin and red blood cells in the body. Red blood cells are vital for the transport of oxygen from the lungs to all tissues in the body.
