How is the Wolverhampton population affected?

Wolverhampton has a significant percentage of black and ethnic minority population and is typical of an area where information, support, education, counselling and screening is vital to the community at risk (18.6% 1991 census). It has been identified that the carrier frequency of thalassaemia in Wolverhampton is 1 in 6. The national figure indicates the carrier frequency rate for thalassaemia in Asians is 1 in 10-30 this figure includes all individuals tested for thalassaemia including those not from the affected communities, whereas screening in Wolverhampton only applies to the targeted communities. (ref: HTA 2000;Vol 4 No.3) - 08 April 2012
