ITP Awareness Week

28 September, 2023

This week is #ITPAwarenessWeek, where we help to raise awareness for patients living with the rare blood autoimmune disease #ImmuneThrombocytopenia or ITP. A rare disease where the body’s immune system attacks platelets. Platelets assist the blood in clotting, and ITP Patients have a low platelet count.
ITP impacts approx. 1 in 10,000 Australians; it affects children and adults. There is no cure. No single test is currently available to determine whether a person has ITP; for most people, there is no known cause. ITP Australia’s mission is to provide up-to-date Australian-based information, education, support and advocacy for ITP patients, carers and families.

Old Treasury Building will be lit in purple for this event from sunrise to sunset.
