With a large number of tribal population suffering from sickle-cell anaemia and thalassemia, the government has established a research centre in Chandrapur in Maharashtra to help early detection and control of these blood related disorders. The Union Health Ministry said that the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has initiated efforts to set up a satellite centre of National Institute of Haemoglobinopathies (Mumbai) in the Chandrapur district. The Ministry said that since the establishment of a permanent centre may take time, ICMR has acquired a portion of the district TB Hospital in Chandrapur to start the research activities.
