Haemophilia is a mostly inherited genetic disorder that impairs the body’s ability to make blood clots, a process needed to stop bleeding. This results in people bleeding longer after an injury, easy bruising, and an increased risk of bleeding inside joints or the brain.
World Hemophilia Day is an international awareness day for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders. It is held annually on April 17. This is a critical effort since with increased awareness comes better diagnosis and access to care for the millions who remain without treatment.
This year, WHD2019 will rally our community around the theme OUTREACH & IDENTIFICATION and focus on showcasing the continuous efforts our organization, partners and sponsors have put into reaching out to new groups and helping diagnose more patients around the world.
We believe that every person with an inherited bleeding disorder deserves access to care and treatment. One day, all people with a bleeding disorder will have proper care, no matter where they live.
