World Hemophilia Day

On World Hemophilia Day 2010, April 17, meet the many faces of bleeding disorders - united to achieve Treatment for All. Each year hemophilia organizations around the world celebrate World Hemophilia Day, increasing awareness of hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.

The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) will launch “The Many Faces of Bleeding Disorders” video podcast on World Hemophilia Day. This video podcast celebrates the whole bleeding disorders community – people with hemophilia and symptomatic carriers, males and females with von Willebrand disease, as well as rarer factor deficiencies, and inherited platelet disorders. It features the impact of these conditions through global patient perspectives and includes a call-to-action for access and improved patient standard of care.

“The goal of the World Federation of Hemophilia is that, one day, treatment will be available for all those with inherited bleeding disorders, regardless of where they live,” said Mark Skinner, WFH president. “Our vision of Treatment for All means expanding services beyond hemophilia.”
