Purpose: Thalassemia is a group of genetic blood disorders characterized by an absence or reduction in the production of hemoglobin. Severity is variable, from less severe anemia, through thalassemia intermedia. Thalassemia prevalence in Thailand remains high and its prevention and control are suboptimal compared to other countries where the disease is common. Approximately, 1% of Thai people have thalassemia (n= 630,000); 30-40 % of the populations are carriers (18- 25 million people) of at least one of the abnormal genes that can be transmitted to their offspring. Prevention and control are integral to reducing the number of infants born with severe thalassemia (Hb Bart's hydrops fetalis [homozygous alpha thalassemia 1], homozygous gamma thalassemia, and beta thalassemia/Hb E diseases) in Thailand. Educating Thai high school students about thalassemia is an appropriate strategy to reduce the prevalence of the disorder. Design: The Thalassemia Education Program (TEP) for Thai high school students constructed by the author includes a statement of desired students' competencies, suggested curricular content, teaching- learning strategies, and evaluation methods. This template was validated by eight Thai experts in genetics counseling, thalassemia treatment, service education and nursing curriculum and education. The TEP for Thai High School Students was judged as an appropriate and applicable guide to facilitate comprehensive curriculum development, assessment, and planning.
