Premarital screening aims primarily to give couples (who are planning to get married soon) medical consultation on the odds of transmitting genetic diseases to their children. Given that consanguineous marriages are so common in the Middle East and children of consanguineous marriages are at increased risk for genetic diseases and congenital malformations, and due to its impacts on public health, it is important to educate couples, providing accurate and unobvious information. It offers a crucial health assessment of soon-to-be married couples in which they are tested for genetic(Thalassemia and Sickle Cell Anemia), infectious (Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and HIV) and transmissible diseases.
