There are many reasons behind these inherited diseases such as large population, high birth rate, consanguineous marriage favoured in many communities tec. An estimated 495,000 infants with congenital malformations, 390,000 with G6PD deficiency, 21,400 with Down syndrome, 9,000 with β-thalassaemia, 5,200 with sickle cell disease, and 9,760 with amino acid disorders are born each year.
The prevalence of late-onset multi-factorial disorders (including coronary artery disease, hypertension and psychiatric disorders) is also large. Due to inadequate diagnostic, management and rehabilitation facilities, the burden of these disorders is greater than in Western countries.
