The DBA-UK is the Diamond Blackfan Anemia Support Group, established in Great Britain in 1998 to help people who have been diagnosed with Diamond Blackfan Anemia, and for those with an interest in aplastic anemias, both professionally and otherwise. The aim of the group is to raise awareness of DBA, provide information to sufferers on treatments and therapies, and provide a forum for the discussion of the impact of DBA on everyday life. As a registered charity in England and Wales, it raises funds to aid research into new therapies and cures for this rare condition. DBA is a form of anemia in which the bone marrow produces little or no red blood cells, resulting in severe deterioration of normal life-sustaining functions. The condition affects 600 to 700 children and adults worldwide.
