Ethnicity and Caring for a Disabled Child: The Case of Children with Sickle Cell or Thalassaemia

Show Summary Details

Preview

We provide an overview of the literature on sickle cell disorders and thalassaemia major in the broader context of debates on childhood disability and chronic illness, and on ethnicity, racism and health care.
