A boy suffering from Thalassemia looks on as he undergoes a blood transfusion process at PIMS in Islamabad...
A boy suffering from Thalassemia looks on as he undergoes a blood transfusion process at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) in Islamabad December 5, 2014. Lax oversight of blood banks means about a fifth of patients in Pakistan who get regular transfusions have been infected with hepatitis, a top government health official said on Friday. Some also get HIV. Pakistan's dangerously unregulated blood banks are in the spotlight after a charitable federation said 10 children getting transfusions for a blood disease contracted HIV. About 22,000 children with thalassaemia, which causes low levels of protein in the blood, get regular transfusions, the Thalassaemia Federation of Pakistan said. Government officials are investigating and have not confirmed the cases it cited. REUTERS/Faisl Mahmood (PAKISTAN - Tags: HEALTH SOCIETY)
